The Zone Fire Model JET 2.0A Model that Predicts the Activation of Heat, Smoke and Gas Alarms in the Ceiling Jet in the Presence of a Smoke Layer

William D. Davis

Abstract

The zone model JET 2.0 is a two-zone, single compartment computer model designed to predict the maximum plume centerline and ceiling jet temperature, velocity, smoke density, and gas density produced by a single fire plume interacting with a growing smoke layer. The impact on the smoke layer due to the presence of draft curtains, ceiling vents and thermal losses to the ceiling are included in the model. Ceiling mounted fusible links, heat, smoke and gas alarms and link actuated ceiling vents can be included in the model simulations.
