AbstractThis research project used full-scale physical model studies combined with computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modeling to investigate the effectiveness of mechanical smoke exhaust systems used for atrium smoke management. The results were used to investigate the impact on smoke venting of the ceiling jet formed when the plume impinges on the ceiling. Also, algebraic equations and a computational fluid dynamic (CFD) model were used to estimate smoke properties in the smoke layer. The numerical results are compared with the experimental results.
