Design of Smoke Management Systems : John H Klote :

Equipment is calibrated to a known source. Physiology, Vol 41, pp Gas expansion, in such a closed space subject to the exhaust of zoned smoke control, is addressed in Chapter 9. Since it is the major combustion product implicated in fire deaths, CO was the first gas studied in a long series of pure gas experiments. The following analysis is for a vent above the neutral plane, but a similar one can be made soke a vent below the neutral plane. Dexign when a large number of windows break on the fire floor, the pressure from the shaft to the building is almost the same as that from the shaft to the outside.

Nonetheless, a significant emphasis on studying other toxic gases is placed by most research organizations in this field, due to the fact that high hazards may exist from additional combustion products whose presence is suggested by the decomposition chemistry, although not necessarily confirmed by medical evidence.

This chapter concentrates on smoke hazards due to toxicity, temperature, and light obscuration. National Fire Protection Association. Using models to support smoke management system manaement. Mobile home living room fire studies: Hemisphere Publications, pp It is well known that HVAC systems promote a considerable degree of air mixing within the spaces they serve.


Smoke Control Systems Introduction and Commissioning

Many building materials thought to be air-tight will leak if not painted or sealed. In the 27 latter case, this represents an exposure concentration for which manxgement equi- librium concentration of COHb in the blood is below the level which causes a lethality Levin et al. Evaluation of the toxicity of combustion products. Frequently, people become disoriented in fire situations because they cannot see through heavy smoke.

Jin indicates that the minimum value of visibility for reflecting signs may be applicable for t lie visibility of other objects such as walls, floors, doors, and stairs, based on Jin’s research the values of K are recommended in table 2. Preliminary data on shorter times indicates that C0 2 may have no effect, probably due drsign the fact that the acidosis takes long times to develop.

The mass flow out of the shaft is the sum of the flow out of the continuous opening, expressed as equation 3.

Pressure measurements on several buildings Tamura and Wilsona, b verify the stack effect theory presented above for conditions en- countered in the field. The airflow through a leakage path is a function of the pressure difference across the leakage path.

Provided that the leakage of these other kllte is relatively small compared to A 0 Lequation 3. This is addressed in the next section.

In this test, various fabrics representing common clothing materials were hung on wire coat hangers and arranged loosely in a wooden wardrobe.

It is common to divide a building into four perimeter zones and a core zone as is shown in figure 6. It is hoped that the scope of a future version of this manual will be broadened to include these topics. For a noncircular duct, the effective diameter is the diameter of a round duct that has the same pressure loss at the same flow rate as that through the noncircular duct.


Fundamental issues of smoke control include reliability, activa- tion, smoke obscuration, toxicity, and the driving forces of smoke movement. However, a smoke control system is subjected to all the forces of stack effect that exist at the moment it is being operated.

The arrangements above are but a few of those possible.

It can be seen that failure rates vary over large ranges and that failure rates vary considerably with equipment type. The flow rate is the cross sectional area times the velocity which is about 10, cfm 4. Because it is difficult to measure leakage paths in existing buildings, the concept of flexibility is also useful for retrofit of smoke control in existing build- ings.

In general, most of these programs are capable of analyzing smoke control systems. All these fires were located on the first floor, but the majority of deaths were on upper floors figure l.

There is no theoretical or experimental evidence that using a building’s heating, ventilation or air conditioning HVAC system for smoke dilution will result in any significant improvement in tenable condi- tions within the fire space. What is the pressure difference across a door that has a 30 lb N door opening force and a frictional and door closer force of 5 lb 22 N?

For the quadruple car shaft: The dilution rate, a, is 0.
