41. Distributed Detection for Tomographic Measurements of Component Concentrations in Fire Generated Plumes (NISTIR 5904)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5904
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/1/1996
Authors: R T Baum, Kevin B McGrattan, Marc R. Nyden
Abstract: One of the major goals of fire research is to develop the capability to make realistic assessments of fire impact and risk by utilizing models. Currently the large scale fire/plume models may not be validated and hence calculations which may have a ...

42. Distributed Sensor Fire Detection (NIST SP 965)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 965
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Kathy A. Notarianni
Abstract: This paper details a case study that utilized model simulations to assess the relative performance benefits of distributed sensing over single-station, single-sensor smoke detection and co-located multi-sensor detection. 500 individual CFAST compute ...

43. Effect of Ignition Conditions on Upward Flame Spread on a Composite Material in a Corner Configuration
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/1/1998
Authors: Thomas J. Ohlemiller, Thomas George Cleary, John R Shields
Abstract: This paper focuses on the issue of fire growth on composite materials beyond the region immediately subjected to an ignition source. Suppression of this is one of the key issues in realizing the safe usage of composite structural materials. A vinyl ...

44. Effects of Sample Mounting on Flammability Properties of Intumescent Polymers
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/1/1993
Authors: Takashi Kashiwagi, Thomas George Cleary
Abstract: Various flammability properties of polycarbonate samples were measured with the Cone Calorimeter and Lateral Ignition and Flame Spread, LIFT, devices at various external fluxes. Four different sample mountings were used with the Cone Calorimeter to ...

45. Enhanced Residential Fire Detection by Combining Smoke and CO Sensors (SP 965)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 965
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, T Ono
Abstract: This paper details an experimental program that gathered photoelectric and ionization analog output smoke sensor, thermal sensor, and an electrochemical CO sensor output signals during exposure to various fire and non-fire stimuli reproduced in the ...

46. Evaluating Multi-Sensor Fire Detectors in the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/29/1999
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michael D. Anderson, Jason D Averill, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST has developed the Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator (FE/DE) for the purpose of testing detectors in a controlled environment. The FE/DE is a flow tunnel where fire or nuisance source characteristics can be controlled so that a detector placed in ...

47. Evaluation of Complex Fire Models (NISTIR 6030)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6030
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/1/1997
Authors: Richard D Peacock, Paul A Reneke, Walter William Jones
Abstract: Several methods for studying predictive capability and sensitivity have been applied to fire models, but with limited utility. These range from explicit evaluation of the equations used in simple models such as ASET to evaluation of complex models f ...

48. Evaluation of Fire Detection Technology for Suitability in Aircraft Cargo Compartments
Report Number: 6242
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/2/1998
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, William L Grosshandler
Abstract: NIST is assisting the FAA in its research to improve fire detection in Class C and D aircraft cargo compartments. Class C and D compartments are inaccessible in flight. Class C compartments are required to have detection and suppression systems inst ...
