1. Methodology to Analyze Wind Pressure Data on Components and Cladding of Low-Rise Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1903
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 12/29/2015
Authors: Dat Duthinh, Joseph A Main
Abstract: This note establishes a method to analyze wind pressure data on cladding and components of low-rise buildings using the National Institute of Standards and Technology-University of Western Ontario (NIST-UWO) database. The aerodynamic pressures induc ...

2. CFAST ‹ Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (Version 7) Volume 2: User‰s Guide
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 12/15/2015
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Glenn P Forney
Abstract: CFAST is a two-zone fire model capable of predicting the environment in a multi-compartment structure subjected to a fire. It calculates the time evolving distribution of smoke and gaseous combustion products as well as the temperature throughout a ...

3. Comparative study of methods to measure the density of Cementious powders
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 12/14/2015
Authors: Michelle Annette Helsel, Chiara F Ferraris, Dale P Bentz
Abstract: The accurate measurement of the density of hydraulic cement plays an essential role in the determination of concrete mixture proportions. As more supplementary cementitious materials (SCM), such as fly ash and slag, or cement replacement materials, ...
