2. Ab Initio Calculations and Kinetic Modeling of Halon and Halon Replacements
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/7/1996
Authors: H. L. Paige, R J Berry, M Schwartz, P Marshall, D R. Burgess, Marc R Nyden
Abstract: The mode of action of the chemical-acting flame suppression agents such as the halons is generally, though not universally, accepted. The details of the several reactions involved in chemical suppression have been studied by many groups using experi ...

3. Acid Gas Production in Inhibited Diffusion Flames
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/3/1994
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, M D King, A Liu, C A. Womeldorf, Y. E. Hsin
Abstract: The proposed replacements to halon 1301, mainly fluorinated and chlorinated hydrocarbons, are expected to be required in significantly higher concentrations than CF3Br to extinguish fires. At these higher concentrations the by-products of the inhibi ...

4. Agent Stability Under Storage (NIST SP 890)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 890
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/1995
Author: Richard H. Harris Jr.
Abstract: Significant losses in fire suppression effectiveness and increases in toxicity are possible if a fire extinguishing agent degrades during multi-year storage. Halon 1301 is known to be stable in metal containers for many years, and any trace degradat ...

6. Aircraft Cargo Compartment Fire and Nuisance Source Test in the FE/DE (NIST SP 965)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 965
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michelle K Donnelly
Abstract: Commercial transport aircraft cargo compartments require both fire detection and suppression capabilities in order to meet regulatory requirements. System reliability is very important since in many cases the cargo compartment is inaccessible during ...

7. Analysis of Large-Scale Fire Test Data
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/1/1991
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Vyto Babrauskas
Abstract: Large-scale room fire testing has evolved from simple fire performance measurements such as intensity and duration of 'room fires' to sophisticated measurements to understand the properties which cause the fire. This paper provides a overview of typ ...

8. Analyzing Strategies for Eliminating Flame Blow-down Occurring in the Navy's 19F4 Fire Fighting Trainer (NISTIR 4825)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4825
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/1/1992
Authors: Glenn P Forney, William D. Davis
Abstract: The purpose of this report is to document a series of numerical experiments performed to analyze strategies for eliminating flame blow-down occurring in the Navy's 19F4 fire fighting training. The first strategy involves the use of a fence in the wa ...

9. Analyzing and Exploiting Numerical Characteristics of Zone Fire Models
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/1/1994
Authors: Glenn P Forney, W F Moss
Abstract: In order to design robust and stable zone fire modeling algorithms, the numerical properties of computer arithmetic and modeling differential equations must be understood. This report examines some of these properties and provides tools for their an ...
