Summary

This book addresses smoke management in enclosures. It provides a platform for understanding the principles of smoke propagation and spread, heat release rate, and effect of sprinklers on suppression. Considering how the sprinkler system has become a vital part of the firefighting systems in enclosures, the book evaluates the effect of sprinklers activation on the fire induced smoke behavior and the interaction of water particles with the smoke layer. It studies two base case models where the sprinklers effect on the fire curve was taken. This base case was assessed with two smoke extraction systems; namely, ducted system and impulse ventilation system. Focusing on key elements, such as visibility, ceiling height, and fire curve, the results of the study will be of interest to mechanical engineers, HVAC professionals, and fire safety professionals and investigators.
