Considerations in the Design of Smoke Management Systems for Atriums

Pressure Difference in H 2 0. Huebscher developed the following relation kklote the effective diameter of rectangular duct ab 0 – D e – 1.

Quantitative determination of smoke toxicity hazard- practical approach for current use. This force to overcome the door closer is usually greater than 3 lb 13 N and, in some cases, can be as large as 20 lb 90 N. Mechanical equipment of a forced air system may be located on each floor figure 6. For simplicity of analysis, the 72 Figure 3. As shown in figure 2. However, a smoke control system can meet its objectives, even if a small amount of smoke infiltrates protected areas.

Two sets of these coefficients are calculated for each flow path to allow for flow in either direction.

What estimate of critical velocity is obtained from the Thomas equation for a snoke 3 ft xmoke. In thick irritating smoke, subjects could not keep their eyes open long enough to read the sign.

However, it is safe to conclude that unnecessary system complexities should be avoided. With plugholing, some of the capacity of the exhaust system is expended in removing air rather than smoke. For a 30 lb N limitation on door opening force, the maximum allowable pressure differences are listed in table 4. Also, how much does the answer change for irritating smoke?

The Special Inspector is not the Designer. The mass flow into the shaft is expressed ,anagement equation 3. This program was originally intended as a research tool to investigate the feasibility of specific smoke control systems and to determine the interaction between these systems and the rest of the building. Test duct work in segments if too large or concealment is imminent.

Most systejs and louvers do not provide percent free openings. The properties of smoke are expressed routinely in terms of the transmittance as either optical density or attenuation coefficient.

An atrium that is only partially open to the desugn building, for example, may not sysetms a mechanical exhaust system because the smoke can be contained above the opening see Figure 2. The death toll was 85, and the majority of the deaths were on floors far above the fire.

In this example return air from the living quarters is drawn in at one location, flows through filter, fan and coils, and is distributed back to the residence.

The following is a simple analysis of smoke dilution for spaces in which there is no fire. Calculate the above flow for standard density dwsign 0. Various approaches or tools are available for the design of these systems, from empirical equations for simpler buildings to numerical modelling for more complex ones. Signs in a smoke filled chamber were observed from outside through a glass window, and the results for light-emitting signs are shown in figure 2. Usually done by the Air Balance firm.

For the system of flow paths illustrated in figure 3. The maximum allowable pressure difference should be a value that does not result in excessive door opening forces. Single zone systems are so called because they serve only one HVAC control zone. Some leakage paths are obvious, such as gaps around closed doors, open doors, elevator doors, windows, and air transfer grilles.

A second approach, which uses a fire that grows over time to model actual growth, can result in design criteria that are less onerous. The following analysis is for a vent above the neutral plane, but a similar one can be made for a vent below the neutral plane.

Medium occupant density is based on 1 person per 11 ft 2and high density is based on 1 person per 5. This phenomenon is called by various names such as stack effect, stack action, and chimney effect. An important consideration regarding the reliability of a component in a non-commissioned system is if that component is part of a HVAC system.


In high atriums, the amount of air entrained in the plume can be significant and can have a major impact on the requirements of the o venting system.

The stairwell was the cold column of air and the other shafts within the building were the warm columns of air. The equations used for derivations are dimensionally homogeneous, and they can be used with the SI system, the slug pound system, and the pound mass kkote system Appendix A. National Climatic Center The discussion of stack effect to this point has been general, and it applies to buildings maangement or without leakage through floors. The possibility of fresh air from below the smoke layer being pulled into the exhaust inlets must be considered for designs mlote which the distance between the design height and the exhaust inlets is limited.

V k – critical air velocity to prevent smoke backflow E – energy release rate into corridor W – corridor width p – density of upstream air c – specific heat of downstream gases T – absolute temperature of downstream gases K – constant on the order of 1 g – acceleration of gravity 87 Figure 4.

The pressure coefficient depends on building geometry and local wind obstructions, and the pressure coefficient varies locally over the wall surface. However, the oxygen supplied is a concern. For parallel and series flow paths, the equations for effective flow area are:
