AbstractThis study investigated the suitability of CONTAMW, an indoor air quality analysis network model, for predicting smoke movement in multi-story buildings by comparing its predictions with data from experiments conducted in the NRC10-story test facility. This paper presents two sets of experimental data. In the first experiment, a propane burner was used to produce a constant heat release rate of 1 MW. In the second experiment, a couch was used as the fuel with the average heat release rate being 730 kW. The measured CO2 concentrations and pressure in the stair shaft were compared with the results predicted using the model.
