AbstractIn recent years, NRC has conducted collaborative research projects to address issues related to smoke management in buildings with ASHRAE and other North American organizations. This includes projects to investigate the effectiveness of smoke exhaust systems in atria, sprinklered fires in retail malls and the effectiveness of duct smoke detectors in HVAC systems. Ongoing projects include investigations of fires involving communication cables in return air plenums and the evaluation of the balcony spill plume correlations used to design atrium smoke management systems. This paper provides an overview of recent and ongoing smoke management research at NRC. It also discusses future research directions.
