Calculated Chemical Contributions to Extinguishment by Halocarbons

Sheinson and Driscoll [l] and Sheinson, Penner-Hahn, and Indritz [2] have presented a method to quantify suppression action pathways for extinguishing agents. We have taken this method, recast the

Advanced Agent Identification and Preliminary Assessment.

Abstract : In 1993, production of halon fire and explosion protection agents was phased and to date, no Halon 1301 substitute has been identified to provide total-flood protection against fires and

Construction of an exploratory list of chemicals to initiate the search for halon alternatives. Technical note (Final)

Production of the currently-used halogenated fire suppressants (halons) will be curtailed because of their contribution to stratospheric ozone depletion. The report, one of the first efforts toward

Scaling of fire extinguishment data

The results of small-scale tests of fire extinguishment by total flooding with Halon 1301, when compared on a normalized basis, with those of large-scale tests conducted by other organizations

SCREENING OF FLAME-RESISTANT MATERIALS AND COMPARISON OF HELIUM WITH NITROGEN FOR USE IN DIVING ATMOSPHERES

Abstract : The main purposes of the study were: (1) to determine the influence of sample angle, ambient-gas composition (air, oxygen-enriched air, pure oxygen, oxygen-nitrogen mixtures, and
