12. Using CFAST to Estimate the Efficiency of Filtering Particulates in a Building (NIST IR 7498)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7498
Topic: Fire Protection Technologies
Published: 4/30/2008
Authors: Walter William Jones, Richard D Peacock
Abstract: CFAST is a two-zone fire model used to calculate the evolving distribution of smoke, fire gases and temperature throughout compartments of a constructed facility during a fire. The modeling equations used in CFAST take the mathematical form of an ini ...
