11. Research Needs to Advance Concrete Pumping Technology
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1866
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/10/2015
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Nicos Martys, Myoungsung Choi, Van Bui, Trey Hamilton, Didier Lootens
Abstract: With the increasing use of pumping to place concrete, the development and refinement of the industry practice to ensure successful concrete pumping is becoming an important need for the concrete construction industry. To date, research on concret ...

12. Compact Nano-Mechanical Plasmonic Phase Modulators
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/1/2015
Authors: Brian Scott Dennis, Michael Haftel, David Czaplewski, Daniel Lopez, Girsh Blumberg, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: The miniaturization of photonic devices is fundamentally limited by the index of refraction of the constituent materials if light is confined in dielectric nanostructures. By coupling electromagnetic fields to metal‰s free electrons plasmonic devices ...

13. Exothermic Reaction of Halogenated Hydrocarbons: WORKSHOP PROCEEDINGS
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1871
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/13/2015
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Jeffrey A Manion
Abstract: A workshop was held at NIST Gaithersburg on October 27 and 28, 2014 to discuss the exothermic reaction of halogenated hydrocarbons. The industries that gathered to discuss the topic were the fire suppression, fire suppression in aircraft, and He ...

14. Characterizing Indoor Air- Quality Performance Using a Graphical Approach
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1868
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 3/3/2015
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Cynthia H. Reed, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: In this paper, we describe and demonstrate a graphical approach to illustrating the indoor air quality (IAQ) performance of high-performing buildings. We start by describing previous efforts to establish IAQ and indoor environmental quality (I ...

15. Summary Article: IEA HPP Annex 36, Quality Installation/Quality Maintanace Sensitivity Studies
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/25/2015
Authors: Glenn Hourahan, Piotr A Domanski, Van Baxter
Abstract: It is widely recognized that residential and commercial heat pump equipment experience significant ,in-fieldŠ performance loss (i.e., capacity and efficiency) depending on how the components are sized, matched, installed, and subsequently field-m ...

17. A Review of Test Methods for Determining Protective Capabilities of Fire Fighter Protective Clothing from Steam
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1861
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/5/2015
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Daniel Madrzykowski
Abstract: Primary focus of this paper is to review existing test methods that quantify steam burn injuries and to compare bench-scale test methods that use pre-wetted samples as opposed to external steam exposures to evaluate heat and moisture transfer i ...

18. Experimental and Numerical Simulations of the Gas-Phase Effectiveness of Phosphorus Compounds
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/2/2015
Authors: Nicolas Bouvet, Gregory T Linteris, Valeri Ivan Babushok, Fumiaki Takahashi, Viswanath R Katta
Abstract: The effectiveness of phosphorus-containing compounds as gas-phase combustion inhibitors varies widely with flame type. To understand this behavior, experiments are performed with dimethyl methylphosphonate (DMMP) added to the oxidizer stream of m ...

19. SIMULATIONS OF GAS-PHASE INTERACTIONS OF PHOSPHORUS FLAME RETARDANTS WITH DIFFUSION FLAME STRUCTURE
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 2/2/2015
Authors: Gregory T Linteris, Fumiaki Takahashi, Viswanath R Katta, Valeri Ivan Babushok
Abstract: The interaction of the gas-phase mechanisms of phosphorus flame retardants with the co-flow diffusion flame structure has been investigated computationally to complement the experimental research at NIST. Time-dependent axisymmetric computation was ...

20. Evaluating Smoldering Behavior of Fire-Blocking Barrier Fabrics
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 1/29/2015
Authors: Shonali Nazare, William M Pitts, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis
Abstract: This study reports on the smoldering propensity of commercially available barrier fabrics (BFs) in a small-scale upholstered seating mock-up configuration. Most commercially available BFs are smolder resistant when tested alone over a standard flexi ...
