63. Certification of SRM 2492: Bingham Paste Mixture for Rheological Measurements
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 260-174Rev. 2012
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/7/2012
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Paul E Stutzman, William F Guthrie
Abstract: Rheological measurements are often performed using a rotational rheometer. In this type of rheometer, the tested fluid is sheared between two surfaces, one of which is rotating [1]. Usually, the angular velocity is imposed and the response of the mat ...

70. Characterizing Inward Leakage in a Pressure-Demand, Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/10/2011
Authors: Rodney A Bryant, Amy E. Mensch
Abstract: An analytical model of the flow across a resistive flow path such as an orifice or pipe was applied to predict the inward leakage in the facepiece of a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) during a steady negative facepiece pressure. The model w ...
