61. Fire Detector Performance Predictions in a Simulated Multi-Room Configurtion (NIST SP 965)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 965
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michelle K Donnelly, George William Mulholland, B Farouk
Abstract: Modeling fire detector performance requires detailed information on the environment surrounding the detector, the species transport (heat, smoke, gas) from the surrounding to the sensing surface or volume, and the sensor response. The species transp ...

66. Fire Emulator/Detector Evaluator: Design, Operation, and Performance (NIST SP 965)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 965
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Thomas George Cleary, Michelle K Donnelly, William L. Grosshandler
Abstract: This paper describes the fire emulator/detector evaluator which was developed by NIST. The FE/DE has proven to be a very flexible design. The main function of the device is to reproduce the environment (temperature, air velocity, aerosol and gas spe ...
