Smoke control systems are only needed for a short time over the life of a building. Air I flows through leakage paths from regions of high pressure to regions of low pressure.

Some calculate steady state airflow and pressures throughout a building Sander ; and Sander and Tamura However, it is believed that the insight gained justifies this treatment despite these limitations.

The larger the door or the greater the pressure difference, the more the opening force will be. Current- ly, the potential effects of reduced oxygen are addressed in the Fractional Effective Dose parameter discussed below. Gross and Haberman’ s analysis for region 2 is complicated, and equation 4.

Design of Smoke Management Systems

If the flows and pressures are solved for one side, those on the other side are also known. The flow area of most large openings, such as open windows, can be calculated easily. For the quadruple car shaft: The result of this work shown in fig. The permeability and insulating value of the clothing worn can also have a significant effect on the ability to withstand elevated temperatures.

The reason can be desigj by the scenario of a man who observing 8 a fire on an upper floor of a building decides that the first thing he should do is to get out of the building. This flow is known as the ceiling jet.

The following failure rates were arbitrarily selected for example calculations, but their relative values are based on the above discussion: It is common to divide a building into four perimeter zones and a core zone mwnagement is shown in figure 6.

Thus the variation of pressure with height for the openings can be neglected, and the mass flow rate into the shaft can be managemenr as C A, b 3.


On floors far removed from the fire, the hazards due to temperature are manageement to be insignificant. Stairwells and elevator shafts can become smoke – loggedthereby blocking evacuation and inhibiting fire fighting. Determine whether the design criteria can be met by allowing smoke to fill the atrium space without provision for smoke exhaust.

These demands depend on occupan- cy, the presence of heat releasing equipment, electrical lighting levels, and heat transferred to or from the outside. Leakage between floors results in sysyems flow to the floor above the fire floor. Suddenly applied “jerk” pushes and pulls or two handed forward leaning pushes would have resulted in greater forces.

Manage where smoke goes and where smoke does not go. For this assumption to be appropriate, a program of acceptance testing and defect correction is necessary.

Pressures inside the shaft and outside the building are graphically illustrated in figure 3. Further, there are inlet and outlet losses due to flows just outside the gap.

This allows simulation of stairwell pressurization, elevator shaft pressurization, stairwell vestibule pressurization, and pressurization of any other building space. During the design of a new building, the leakage paths throughout the building can only be estimated.

For systeems round duct, the pressure los due to friction is expressed by the Darcy equation where f is the friction factor, L is the duct length, D is the duct diameter, p is the gas density inside the duct, and V is the average velocity in the duct. The sysyems difference from the shaft to the outside is expressed by 70 Figure 3.

Smoke mass flow rates are based on estimated heat release rates for use in the design of a smoke exhaust system. Values for C w and n, as well as practical engineering information about wind effects are provided in Chapter 3.

For this discussion, the force to overcome the door closer and other friction is that force at the very beginning of the opening process. They experimentally determined flow coefficients and exponents for the leakage paths of the Sywtems Fire Research Tower using regression analysis.


The smoke hazard from a fire in high spaces.

This would indicate that this is the time at which a lethal dose was received, even though the death occurred later. There are an enormous number of errors that can occur during manufacture, transportation, storage, and installation that can cause a component to fail to operate. These equations are easily identified, because the appropriate units for the equation are specifically indicated in the text. In this case, the appropriate physical quantity is pressure difference. The material was selected to aid in the understanding of the smoke control systems discussed in later chapters.

Such delayed activation can suddenly transport a body of smoke that is highly charged with unburned hydrocarbonscarbon monoxide and other toxic gases and depleted of oxygen to remote locations.

Algebraic equations are also available for estimating the smoke mass flow rates for fires located in communicating spaces. For building compartments this flow can be either horizontal or vertical; however, for shafts this flow can only be horizontal. The perimeter zones can be conditioned by a variety of means including fan c Central System in Penthouse d Multiple Mechanical Floors Figure 6.

Considerations in the Design of Smoke Management Systems for Atriums

The light can be from a columnated source or a laser. An extremely desirable feature in such spaces would be the ability to purge the residual smoke and the suppressant gas after the fire was completely extinguished and to replace them with fresh desigb. This eliminates what is probably the major source of fluctuations, that is the opening and closing of the exterior stairwell door. The arrangements above are but a few of those possible.

If the absolute value of this sum is less than the convergence limit, then equation 5. Chapter 2 discusses the nature of smoke including obscuration and toxicity. Leakage area ratios walls exits other shafts floors and roofs systens determined by area.
