|Title:||Computer Program for Analysis of Smoke Control Systems. Final Report.|
|Published:||June 01, 1982|
|Abstract:||This paper describes a computer program developed to analyze systems intended to control smoke in building fires. These systems include pressurized stairwells, pressurized elevator shafts, one smoke control systems, and pressurized corridors. This program calculates air flows and differential pressures throughout a building in which a smoke control system is operating. The basic assumptions and limitations of the program are also discussed. The appendices contain a program listing and examples. NOTE: The computer program can be dowloaded from the FRBBS.|
