21. Computing Radiative Heat Transfer Occurring in a Zone Fire Model (NISTIR 4709)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4709
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/1991
Author: Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Radiation, convection and conduction are the three mechanisms which a zone fire model must consider when calculating the heat transfer between fires, wall surfaces and room gases. Radiation dominates the other two modes of heat transfer in rooms whe ...

22. Computing the Effect of Sprinkler Sprays on Fire Induced Gas Flow
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/10/1995
Authors: Glenn P Forney, Kevin B McGrattan
Abstract: Over the last twenty years there has been much debate concerning the interaction of sprinklers and draft curtains in large storage facilities. At issue is whether or not the two fire protection systems are mutually beneficial. It has been suggested ...

23. Concepts for Fire Protection of Passenger Rail Transportation Vehicles: Past, Present, and Future
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/31/1995
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Walter William Jones, Richard W. Bukowski, Vyto Babrauskas
Abstract: Recent advances in passenger rail transportation, fire test methods, and hazard analysis necessitate re-examination of requirements for fire safety. Several studies have indicated nearly random ability of current bench-scale tests to predict actual ...

28. Data Structures for the Fire Data Management System, FDMS 2.0 (NISTIR 6088)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6088
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/1997
Authors: Rebecca W. Portier, Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke
Abstract: Fire Data Management System, FDMS, is a design for a computer database to store and retrieve fire test results obtained from bench-scale and real-scale tests as well as fire simulation programs. By storing available fire test values in a common form ...

29. Data for Room Fire Model Comparisons
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/1/1991
Authors: Richard D Peacock, S Davis, Vyto Babrauskas
Abstract: With the development of models to predict fire growth and spread in buildings, there has been a concomitant evolution in the measurement and analysis of experimental data in real-scale fires. This report presents the types of analyses that can be us ...
