31. High Pressure Release and Dispersion of Hydrogen in a Partially Enclosed Compartment : Effect of Natural and Forced Ventilation
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/2/2013
Authors: Kuldeep R Prasad, Thomas George Cleary, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: The study of compressed hydrogen release from high-pressure storage systems has practical application for hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Such releases may occur either due to accidental damage to a storage tank or connecting piping, or due to ...

32. Lateral torsional buckling of steel W-beams subjected to localized fires
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/1/2013
Authors: Chao Zhang, John L Gross, Therese P McAllister
Abstract: Current design approaches to assess the lateral torsional buckling capacity of steel beams in fire are based on the assumption of uniform steel temperature. This paper investigates the effect of temperature gradients on the lateral torsional buckling ...

33. Smokeview (Version 6) - A Tool for Visualizing Fire Dynamics Simulation Data Volume II: Technical Reference Guide
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1017-2
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/28/2013
Author: Glenn P Forney
Abstract: Smokeview is a software tool designed to visualize numerical calculations generated by the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. This report documents some of the algorithms Smokeview ...

34. Theory and Algorithms for Weighted Total Least-Squares Fitting of Lines, Planes, and Parallel Planes to Support Tolerancing Standards
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/16/2013
Authors: Craig M Shakarji, Vijay Srinivasan
Abstract: We present the theory and algorithms for fitting a line, a plane, two parallel planes (corresponding to a slot or a slab) or many parallel planes in a total (orthogonal) least-squares sense to coordinate data that is weighted. Each of these problems ...

35. Standard formaldehyde source for chamber testing of material emissions: model development, experimental evaluation and impacts of environmental factors
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/14/2013
Authors: Wenjuan Wei, Cynthia H. Reed, Andrew Keith Persily, Yinping Zhang
Abstract: Formaldehyde, which is recognized as a harmful indoor air pollutant for human health, is emitted from urea-formaldehyde resin in wood products. Chamber tests are used to evaluate formaldehyde emission rates from these products. However, there is no a ...

36. The Effects of Wildfire Prevention Activities
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/1/2013
Authors: Douglas S Thomas, David T Butry, Jeffrey P. Prestemon
Abstract: Eighty percent of wildfires are human caused, so it is important for decision makers and land managers to consider the role of prevention activities that minimize the costs and losses of human-caused wildfires. There have been significant efforts aim ...

38. Characterizing Large-Form-Factor Devices in a Reverberation Chamber
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/15/2013
Authors: Catherine A Remley, Gerrit Stefan van de Beek, Christopher L Holloway, John M Ladbury
Abstract: Abstract,With new technologies such as machine-to-machine communications there is a growing need to test large-formfactor devices in reverberation chambers. The performance of the reverberation chamber can be degraded by the physical characteristics ...

39. Residential Carbon Monoxide Exposure due to Indoor Generator Operation: Effects of Source Location and Emission Rate
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1782
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/25/2013
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Yanling Wang, Brian J Polidoro, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and others are concerned about the hazard of acute residential carbon monoxide (CO) exposures from portable gasoline powered generators that can result in death or serious and/or lasting adverse ...

40. Consideration of Envelope Airtightness in Modelling Commercial Building Energy Consumption
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/24/2013
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As various strategies for improving building envelope and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly used to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of energy loss will occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts o ...
