***EACH PAPER IS TREATED LIKE A SEPARATE DOCUMENT AND MAY BE VIEWED AND/OR DOWNLOADED THAT WAY*** The 13th meeting of the U.S.-Japan Panel on Fire Research and Safety was held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology March 13-20, 1996. The core of the meeting consisted of technical sessions on design/risk/hazard/performance standards, burning of real objects, experimental refinement and validation of fire models, suppression, materials testing, detection, and fires after earthquakes. The last of these topics took on special meaning in the wake of two disasters since the 12th meeting: a major earthquake in Northridge, California and the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake on the largest Japanese island of Honshu. In addition, the meeting hosted two one-day Symposia honoring two long-time principals of fire research in general and this UJNR Panel in particular. The first was in honor of Professor Edward Zukoski on the occasion of his retirement from the California Institute of Technology. The second was in memory of Professor Kunio Kawagoe of the Building Research Institute and Tokyo Science University.
