3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The January 17, 1995 Hyogoken-Nanbu earthquake of magnitude 7.2 in JMA scale (Mw = 6.9), which struck Kobe, Japan and its surrounding area was the most severe earthquake to affect that region this century. The earthquake resulted in more than 6,000 deaths and over 30,000 injuries. Fires following the earthquake incinerated the equivalent of 70 U.S. city blocks. They together destroyed over l50,000 buildings and left about 300,000 people homeless. The economic loss as a result of this earthquake is estimated to reach $2 00 billion. An investigation was conducted under the auspices of the Panel on Wind and Seismic Effects of the U.S.-Japan Program in Natural Resources to observe, document, and summarize important lessons from this earthquake that can be used to mitigate the potentially tragic impact of future earthquakes on modern urbanized communities. An 18- member team was in Japan from February 12 to February 18, 1995 to study seismology, geology, and geotechnical effects; as well as- the performance of buildings, lifelines, and fire safety systems. This document summarizes the information collected during as well as following this investigation. Key findings of the investigation include needs for research and for improvements in practices to achieve earthquake loss reduction in the United States

Evaluation of alternative in-flight fire suppressants for full- scale testing in simulated aircraft engine nacelles and dry bays by William Lytle Grosshandler ( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The fire extinguishers are activated remotely following an alarm signal to the crew. Dry bays are located in the wings and fuselage of the aircraft and vary considerably in geometry. They contain a variety of electronic and mechanical components, and are either adjacent to fuel tanks or have fuel, hydraulic or lubricating fluid lines passing through them. The threat is from an anti-aircraft projectile which ruptures a fuel tank or flammable line, necessitating rapid and automatic detection, agent release and suppression to avoid possible loss of the aircraft. Details of all aspects of the research program are provided in different sections of this special publication. The rationale for arriving at critical conclusions and the scientific basis supporting the above recommendations are discussed

Corridor a routine for estimating the initial wave front resulting from high temperature fire exposure to a corridor by H. E Nelson ( )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A first order model and computer program implementing previously developed procedures for "estimating the speed, depth, and temperature of a fire produced gravity wave front in a corridor have been developed. The program has been incorporated into FPETOOL and adjustments made to accommodated fires that occur in the corridor or in a room adjacent to the corridor. Comparisons to test results are presented and show reasonable correlation. A users' guide is included
Comparison of FPETool -- FIRE SIMULATOR with data from full scale experiments by Robert L Vettori ( )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Generally, upper layer depth predictions were good only for situations where there was not a large vent from the room. For the full scale experiment conducted in a large room with a high ceiling, predicted link and ceiling jet temperatures had better agreement with measured values if consideration was given to the time required for the transport of the products of combustion from the fire to the link. For experiments which had varying fire growth rates, predictions for upper layer temperature increase were better for experiments with the slower fire growth rates
