This report discusses research completed under NBS Grant
No. 7-9020, during the period September 1, 1977 to
August 31, 1978. The investigation considers the
processes which occur when a turbulent fire impinges
upon a horizontal ceiling. Measurements were conducted
to determine free flame heights, impinging flame lengths
along the ceiling, ceiling heat fluxes and mean
temperature distributions in the flow. Both unconfined
and confined ceilings were considered. Theoretical
analysis was completed in order to suggest simple
methods for correlating the data.
