Computational Analysis of Performance of Smoke Exhaust System in Atrium Buildings with Nonuniform Spaces
Performance of the smoke exhaust system in two atria with nonuniform spaces will be analyzed by fire models in this paper. A two-layer zone model and a Computational Fluid Dynamics field model FDS developed by the Building and Fire Research Laboratory, National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA are used. Numerical results are compared with the experimental data by hot smoke test in these two atria. Both fire models can give good predictions and so are suitable for evaluating the performance of the smoke exhaust system.
