AbstractTo evaluate the merits of the different methods of simulating fire dynamics, this paper presents a computational study of fire growth and smoke movement in a mechanically exhausted atrium. The numerical results were obtained using three approaches: simple correlations, zone modeling, and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technique. This paper compares the predictions of the various numerical models with the experimental data obtained in a series of tests conducted at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) to investigate the effectiveness of smoke management systems in large spaces.
