Kevin B. McGrattan, Isaac Leventon

Abstract

This report documents a series of fire experiments performed within steel electrical enclosures. The objective is to validate a simple empirical model that predicts the maximum heat release rate of a fire within a closed compartment as a function of its ventilation openings.
