A building fire field model has been developed that can simulate the fire-induced field of flow, temperature and smoke concentrations within enclosures. The model is particularly useful in predicting the fire environment inside big enclosures such as atria or tunnels. The results obtained can provide guidelines for designing appropriate fire services systems. The model provides a means of analyzing a natural convection problem.
