Series: Handbook (NIST HB)
Report Number: 146
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/1/1989
Authors: Richard W. Bukowski, Richard D Peacock, Walter William Jones, C. L. Forney
Abstract: This report describes the first version of a method for predicting the hazards to occupants involved in a building fire. To implement the method, a personal computer software package called HAZARD I is provided. The software consists of modules whic ...

54. Experimental Data Set for the Accuracy Assessment of Room Fire Models (NBSIR 88-3752)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 88-3752
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/1/1988
Authors: Richard D Peacock, S Davis, B T Lee
Abstract: The development of experimental data for use in computer fire model accuracy assessment is described. The tests were conducted in a heavily instrumented structure to provide data on temperatures and mass and heat flows in a simple multi-room configu ...

58. Field Modeling: Simulating the Effect of Sloped Beamed Ceilings on Detector and Sprinkler Response. International Fire Detection Research Project. Technical Report. Year 2
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/1/1994
Authors: William D. Davis, Glenn P Forney, Richard W. Bukowski
Abstract: The rapid activation of fire detection and suppression systems in response to a growing fire is one of the important factors required to provide for life safety and property protection. Rapid activation requires that sensors be located at optimal di ...

60. Fire Conditions for Smoke Toxicity Measurement
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/1/1994
Authors: Richard George Gann, V Babrauskas, Richard D Peacock, J R Hall
Abstract: This paper identifies those fire conditions most often present when smoke toxicity is the cause of death. It begins with a review of the evidence that smoke-inhalation deaths are in the majority in fire fatalities in the United States. Next, there i ...
