951. Collected Reports and Publications by the National Institute of Standards and Technology on Heat Flux Gage Calibration and Usage
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 971
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/1/2001
Authors: William M Pitts, Star R. Burgess
Abstract: This volume contains archival reports and publications produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and its predecessor, the National Bureau of Standards. Even though some research dates back to the 1970s, most of the work has appe ...

952. Combination of Transient Plane Source and Slug Calorimeter Measurements to Estimate the Thermal Properties of Fire Resistive Materials
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 5/2/2007
Author: Dale P Bentz
Abstract: The thermal properties of fire resistive materials (FRMs) as a function of temperature critically influence their ability to protect a (steel) structure during a fire exposure. Measurement of these properties is complicated by the microstructural he ...

953. Combining Wind Pressure Databases With Structural Analysis To Predict Peak Responses For Rigid Buildings
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/12/2005
Author: Joseph A Main
Abstract: A procedure is described for the design of rigid buildings for wind loading. The procedure, based on the database-assisted design (DAD) approach, uses measured pressure time series in conjunction with influence coefficients obtained by linear, static ...

954. Combustion Experiments on STS-83 and STS-94: The Crew's Perspective
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/1999
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, J. E. Voss, R. Crouch
Abstract: Despite years of planning and hundreds of drop-tower tests in preparation, the combustion experiments aboard STS-83 and STS-94 were full of surprises. Fortunately, these surprises were related to physical phenomena rather than the hardware's perf ...

955. Combustion Product Formation in Under and Overventilated Full-Scale Enclosure Fires
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/23/1995
Authors: William M Pitts, Nelson P Bryner, Erik L Johnsson
Abstract: The findings of an extensive series of over 140 natural gas fires in a 2/5ths-scale model of a standard room have been previously reported. The current work extends the earlier reduced-scale enclosure (RSE) study to a full-scale enclosure (FSE) and f ...

957. Combustion Research Studies at the National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: Takashi Kashiwagi, William L Grosshandler, Anthony P Hamins, William M Pitts, Cary Presser, Wing Tsang
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is a federal agency within the Technology Administration of the Department of Commerce. NIST's primary mission is to develop and apply technology, measurements, and standards to promote econom ...

959. Combustion of Mattresses Exposed to Flaming Ignition Sources. Part 2. Bench-Scale Tests and Recommended Standard Test. Final Report.
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/1/1981
Author: Vyto Babrauskas
Abstract: Ten mattress types were subjected to full-scale fire tests in the earlier part of this project. Burning behavior was determined and hazard was assessed by classifying into performance groups. In the present study bench-scale test procedures were exam ...
