31. Determining the Uncertainty of X-Ray Absorption Measurements
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/2004
Author: G S Wojcik
Abstract: X-ray absorption techniques have become more common and more accepted in the study of moisture contents and transport in building materials like cement pastes, mortars, and wood. To be able to properly interpret the data gathered by the machine, it ...

34. Development and Validation of Corridor Flow Submodel for CFAST
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/2002
Authors: J. L. Bailey, Glenn P Forney, P. A. Tatem, Walter William Jones
Abstract: The modeling of fire and smoke spread is an evolving field. As knowledge is acquired and resources become available, models are enhanced to make their predictions more accurate and/or their computations faster. This paper will discuss the Consolidat ...

36. Development of a Fire Hazard Assessment Method to Evaluate the Fire Safety of Passenger Trains
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/22/2001
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Richard W. Bukowski, Paul A Reneke, Jason D Averill, S. H. Markos
Abstract: U.S. passenger train fire safety has historically been addressed primarily through the citation of small-scale flammability and smoke emission tests and performance criteria promulgated by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). This approach has ...

39. Development of a Molecular Dynamics Model of Thermal Reactivity in Polymers
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/1/1998
Author: Marc R. Nyden
Abstract: Thermal reactivity is an important consideration that impacts the way polymers and the materials that are made from them are processed and used. This realization has provided motivation for the development of a predictive model that can simulate the ...
