31. Stair Evacuation of People with Mobility Impairments
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock, Bryan Hoskins, Emily Wiess
Abstract: The time that it takes a population to reach safety when descending a stairwell during building evacuations is typically described by measureable engineering variables. These engineering variables include stairwell geometry, speed, density, and p ...

32. Fire Characteristics of Steel Members Coated with Nano-Enhanced Polymers
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/1/2014
Authors: Kathryn M Butler, Alexander H.-D. Cheng, Christopher Mullen, Ahmed Al-Ostaz
Abstract: Applying a polymeric coating on steel members has been demonstrated to be an effective countermeasure for the threat of blast on building and other structures. The development of a blast-resistant coating for steel with good characteristics in a fire ...

33. Ultrafine particle removal and ozone generation by in-duct electrostatic precipitators
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/27/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Dong H. Rim, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In-duct electrostatic air filters (ESP) have been shown to be an effective particulate control device for reducing UFP concentrations (20 nm - 100 nm) in buildings, although they have the potential to increase indoor ozone concentrations due to coron ...

35. A Graphical Approach to Evaluating High-Performing Buildings:Indoor Air Quality, Energy, Water, and Waste
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the performance of high-performing buildings. Our approach enables building designers, owners, operators, and occupants to evaluate the performance of a building as desig ...

36. An analysis of evacuation travel paths on stair landings by means of conditional probabilities
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/20/2014
Authors: Enrico Ronchi, Paul A Reneke, Erica D Kuligowski, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: This paper provides the analysis of a data-set about people movement on stair landings collected during an evacuation drill performed in a six-storey office building in the United States. The evacuation drill was filmed and occupant‰s behaviours on ...

38. General Guidance on Emergency Communication Strategies for Buildings, 2nd Edition
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1827
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/14/2014
Authors: Erica D Kuligowski, Hidemi Omori
Abstract: When a building emergency occurs, it is not always sufficient to simply initiate alarm bells. Individuals may not know what the alarm bell means and as a result may respond inappropriately to its sound. Many buildings have installed mass notificat ...
