Abstract

Two fire zone models CFAST 2.0 and BRI2T are applied to simulate fires in multi-level apartments. Apartments with different levels and several compartments including a staircase are taken as examples. Smoke control designs including ceiling vents and smoke extraction systems installed in the staircase are considered with their performance evaluated. Experimental results reported in the literature are used to compare with the predicted results.
