AbstractThis paper demonstrates an integrated method for using experimental data and computational fluid dynamics modeling to design smoke management for atriums and other large building volumes. By means of full-scale experimentation and computational fluid dynamics modeling, the research correlated the combination of one-tenth scale experimental data and theoretical analysis used for simulating fire conditions to full-scale designs.
