1. Thermal Exposure Sensor for Fire Fighters - Laboratory-Scale Performance Experiments
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1803
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 7/26/2016
Authors: Nelson P Bryner, Atul Deshmukh, John Casali, Jeff Lancaster, Roy A. McLane
Abstract: During structural fire fighting operations, fire fighters wear protective gear to insulate them from high temperature environments, including hot combustion gases, burning surfaces, and thermal radiation. Current turnout gear insulates the fir ...
