Absorption of Thermal Radiation by Burning Polymers

Gregory T. Linteris, Mauro Zammarano, Boris Wilthan, Leonard M. Hanssen
In large-scale fires, the input of energy to burning materials occurs predominantly by radiative transfer. The in-depth absorption of radiant energy by a

Heat release and structural collapse of flexible polyurethane foam

Roland H. Kraemer, Mauro Zammarano, Gregory T. Linteris, Ulf W. Gedde, Jeffrey W. Gilman
Flexible polyurethane foam used in upholstered furniture remains one of the major fire hazards to date. The heat release rate of burning items made of foam


Kuldeep R. Prasad, Roland Kramer, Nathan D. Marsh, Marc R. Nyden, Thomas J. Ohlemiller, William M. Pitts, Mauro Zammarano
The NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is used extensively by the fire protection engineer for performance based design and forensic analysis. The nist

Flexible Polyurethane Foams Nanocomposites

Mauro Zammarano, Roland H. Kraemer, Richard H. Harris Jr., Thomas J. Ohlemiller, Sameer Rahatekar, Jeffrey W. Gilman
Polyurethane flexible foams (PUFs) have a large market as upholstery and bedding cushioning material. There is an increasing demand for flame retarded grades in

Layered Double Hydroxides as Cation Exchange Materials

Paul Braterman, Nandika A. D'Souza, Jeffrey W. Gilman, Mickey C. Richardson, Laxmi K. Sahu, Mauro Zammarano
Layered double hydroxides (LDH) are a class of materials formally related to brucite-like hydroxides by the incorporation of higher valent cations, such as Al
