13. Hydrocarbon Flame Inhibition by C3H2F3Br (2-BTP)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 11/14/2014
Authors: Valeri Ivan Babushok, Gregory T Linteris, Donald R Burgess Jr., Patrick T. Baker
Abstract: The kinetic mechanism of hydrocarbon flame inhibition by the potential halon replacement 2-BTP has been assembled, and is used to study its effects on premixed methane-air flames. Simulations with varying CH4-air stoichiometry and agent loading ha ...

20. Parameter Estimation and Uncertainty Evaluation in a Low Rician K-Factor Reverberation-Chamber Environment
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 10/15/2014
Authors: Chih-Ming Wang, Catherine A Remley, Ansgar T. Kirk, Ryan J. Pirkl, Christopher L Holloway, Dylan F Williams, Paul D Hale
Abstract: In this paper we study statistical methods for estimating the Rician K-factor when this parameter is small. A fiducial approach for making statistical inference on the K-factor is discussed. The approach requires a Monte Carlo method to compute the u ...
