Fire safety analysis of the 180' WLB seagoing buoy tender by Chester M Sprague( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents the results of a comprehensive fire safety analysis of the 180' WLB Seagoing Buoy Tender. The Ship Fire Safety Engineering Methodology (SFSEM) and associated Ship Applied Fire Engineering (SAFE V 2.2), were utilized as an analytical tool to perform the analysis. The SFSEM is a probabilistic based fire risk analysis methodology. SAFE implements the SFSEM and evaluates the probability of spaces and barriers limiting a fire. Visits to the CGC HORNBEAM were made to collect input data. Baseline fire safety analysis results show that with all passive and active fire protection features in effect, the cutter exceeds the established fire safety objectives by a very substantial margin both in port and at sea. With just passive fire protection in effect (without considering automated or manual fire protection), the 180' WLB exceeds its fire safety objectives in every compartment. The passive fire protection in this cutter may be enhanced due to effective use of compartmentation to segregate engineering spaces and due to the fact that many of the bulkheads are constructed of insulated steel. The most probable rooms of origin for fires that may spread to involve multiple compartments are the Motor Room, Auxiliary Machinery Space #3, Linen Locker and Cleaning Gear Locker. A careful analysis of the results from the various output options in SAFE provided in this report may be effectively used to develop realistic fire scenarios to assist the crew in planning firefighting training drills

Evaluating shipboard paint and flammable liquid storage lockers( )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides an evaluation of the hazards associated with shipboard paint and flammable liquid storage lockers on merchant ships. The report also analyzes proposed modifications of the SOLAS regulations addressing fire suppression requirements for paint lockers. Finally, conclusions and recommendations are made for improvement in the regulations for fire and explosion protection of paint locker spaces.

An Evaluation of the International Maritime Organization's gaseous agents test protocol( )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides an evaluation of three gaseous halon alternatives (CEA-410, FM-200, and NAF S-III) and one gas/powder mix (Envirogel) in full-scale machinery space applications. Halon 1301 was also tested to serve as a baseline comparison. The primary objective of this investigation was to evaluate the International Maritime Organization's draft test protocol for gaseous halon alternative fire extinguishing systems. The evaluation focused on various aspects of the test protocol such as compartment configuration, fire scenarios, discharge system parameters, and decomposition product formation
Smoke leakage through Class A boundaries by David T Sheppard( )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the testing and analysis of smoke leakage through fire doors, fire dampers, and fire stops while verifying their fire endurance meets International Maritime Organization (IMO) requirements for Class A. The report includes descriptions of the test procedures followed, the assemblies tested, and the results obtained. The purpose of this project was to develop data that the United States Coast Guard could use when addressing a regulatory discontinuity in the fire test requirements for Class A divisions. Regulation 3.3 of Chapter 11/2 of the 1974 International Convention for The Safety of Life At Sea (SOLAS) requires that Class A divisions be 'constructed as to be capable of preventing the passage of smoke and flame to the end of the one-hour fire test'. The standard fire test evaluates the passage of flame by use of a cotton wool pad. It has no provision for determining the passage of smoke. An objective of this project was also to develop a smoke leakage test protocol and to identify acceptance criteria to complement the standard IMO one hour fire tests for Class A divisions. Tests were conducted on seven (7) fire doors, two (2) fire dampers, and two (2) fire stops. All samples tested were found to pass the one hour fire test without permitting the passage of flame past the door. Two A-15 rated fire doors were tested, and both marginally failed the thermal transmission requirement for the A-15 rating. All other samples were found to meet the acceptance criteria when applicable to the sample rating. All samples permitted more leakage after the fire test than was allowed before the fire test. The report provides comparisons of leakage rates before and after the fire tests

Analysis of pavement response data and use of nondestructive testing for improving pavement design and adoption of mechanistic-empirical pavement design procedure using the Gilford Route 15 instrumented pavement test section : first annual report by Rajib Basu Mallick( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first fully instrumented flexible pavement test section in Maine was constructed in Fall, 2005. This paper presents the description of the instruments, their installation, and analysis of temperature and stress-strain data collected so far. Temperature data was collected for a period of five months, and stress strain data were collected by running a Maine Department of Transportation truck at different speeds. The temperature data at two depths in the Hot Mix Asphalt layer were analyzed to develop models to predict these temperatures on the basis of ambient temperature and solar radiation. The haversine equation was found to be suitable for modeling the strain response in HMA layers, whereas slight variations were used for modeling the responses in the subbase and subgrade layers. The effect of speed on time of loading was evaluated and models were developed. The hot mix asphalt tensile strains were found to be affected significantly by the time of loading as well as temperature, and the measured strains matched well with the predicted strains at lower time of loading and lower temperatures. Stresses from the subbase were greater than predicted values. The subbase strains matched very well with the predicted ones. especially at lower temperature and lower time of loading. The measured subgrade stresses were greater than the predicted stress values. For subgrade strain, the predicted values were found to be consistently lower compared to the measured values. For both stresses and strains in the subgrade, the difference was higher for the higher time of loading and higher temperature. Future work includes using an automated system with a weigh in motion sensor to collect data over the internet and evaluating the effect of environmental conditions on response at different layers
