1. Characterizing Indoor Air- Quality Performance Using a Graphical Approach
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1868
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/3/2015
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Cynthia H. Reed, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the indoor air quality (IAQ) performance of high-performing buildings. We start by describing previous efforts to establish IAQ and indoor environmental quality (I ...

2. Summary Article: IEA HPP Annex 36, Quality Installation/Quality Maintanace Sensitivity Studies
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/25/2015
Authors: Glenn Hourahan, Piotr A Domanski, Van Baxter
Abstract: It is widely recognized that residential and commercial heat pump equipment experience significant ,in-fieldŠ performance loss (i.e., capacity and efficiency) depending on how the components are sized, matched, installed, and subsequently field-m ...

4. A Review of Test Methods for Determining Protective Capabilities of Fire Fighter Protective Clothing from Steam
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1861
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/5/2015
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: Primary focus of this paper is to review existing test methods that quantify steam burn injuries and to compare bench-scale test methods that use pre-wetted samples as opposed to external steam exposures to evaluate heat and moisture transfer i ...

5. Evaluating Smoldering Behavior of Fire-Blocking Barrier Fabrics
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/29/2015
Authors: Shonali Nazare, William M Pitts, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis
Abstract: This study reports on the smoldering propensity of commercially available barrier fabrics (BFs) in a small-scale upholstered seating mock-up configuration. Most commercially available BFs are smolder resistant when tested alone over a standard flexi ...

6. Evaluating smoldering behavior of fire-blocking barrier fabrics
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1859
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/29/2015
Authors: Shonali Nazare, William M Pitts, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis
Abstract: This study reports on the smoldering propensity of commercially available barrier fabrics (BFs) in a small-scale mock-up configuration. Most BFs are smolder resistant when tested alone over a standard flexible polyurethane foam (FPUF). However, w ...

8. Behavior of Unrestrained and Restrained Steel Columns Adjacent to Localized Fire
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 12/12/2014
Authors: Chao Zhang, John L Gross, Therese P McAllister, Guo-Qiang Li
Abstract: Steel columns may be exposed to thermal radiation from localized burning of a fire source nearby. Current structural fire design methods are based on uniform heating and, therefore, uniform temperature conditions, and no practicable methods are p ...

9. High Resolution Imagery Collection for Post-Disaster Studies Utilizing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/19/2014
Authors: Stuart M Adams, Marc L Levitan, Friedland J Carol
Abstract: This paper examines the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to capture imagery for use in post-disaster field studies at the neighborhood and individual building level. Applications of UASs in recent disasters as described in the literature are r ...

10. Study of the Impact of Operation Distance of Outdoor Portable Generators under Different Weather Conditions
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/13/2014
Authors: Leon Wang, Steven J Emmerich, Cheng-Chun Lin
Abstract: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that up to half of non-fatal monoxide (CO) poisoning incidents during the hurricane seasons in 2004 and 2005 involved generators operated outdoors but within seven feet of the hom ...
