A Study of Smoke Extraction Strategies in a Side Platform with Screen Door
A side platform with screen door was studied in this article using the computational fluid dynamics software FDS5.0, a 3D model of the side platform was built with a fire located close to one end wall in the platform. Large Eddy Simulation model (LES) was used to assess the effect of mechanical smoke exhausting under the different ventilation modes. The analysis of temperature field and CO concentration in the platform showed that the exhaust in fire zone mode can improve the ability of single vent, reduce the disturbance to the smoke layer, and the smoke exhaust effect is better than the other modes.
