  • This standard describes the LLNL Fire Protection Facility Survey Program. The purpose of this standard is to describe the type of facility surveys required to fulfill the requirements of DOE Order 420.1B, Facility Safety. Nothing in this standard is intended to prevent the development of a FHA using alternative approaches. Alternate approaches, including formatting, will be by exception only, and approved by the Fire Marshal/Fire Protection Engineering Subject Matter Expert in advance of their use.
  • We conducted 64 enclosure fire tests in the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) fire test cell, and, exploring several parameters of forced ventilation enclosure fires, completed a wide variety of tests. These tests were conducted to improve the fire risk in the Department of Energy (DOE) facilities. The results showed that a variety of factors influence temperature profiles in forced ventilation fires. In this report, we detailed the instrumentation, test procedures, and some of the data collected and hope that this information will provide a basis for futher analysis of the data. 2 refs., 8 figs., 5 tabs.
  • Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has established a mechanism for partnership that integrates the high-performance computing capabilities of the National Labs, the network and cyber technology expertise of leading information technology companies, and the long-term research vision of leading academic cyber programs. The Cyber Science and Security Center is designed to be a working partnership among Laboratory, Industrial, and Academic institutions, and provides all three with a shared R&D environment, technical information sharing, sophisticated high-performance computing facilities, and data resources for the partner institutions and sponsors. The CSSC model is an institution where partner organizations can work singly or in groupsmore » on the most pressing problems of cyber security, where shared vision and mutual leveraging of expertise and facilities can produce results and tools at the cutting edge of cyber science.« less
