AbstractSmoke is a major killer of building occupants in times of fire. How does it spread throughout a building and reach untenable accumulations before temperatures become dangerously high? In this, the first of two articles, the author discusses the movement of smoke. In the second, he will deal with methods for controlling the movement of smoke in buildings.
