AbstractAn engineered approach to designing smoke management systems for atrium buildings can play a role in extending the use of an atrium space. Such an approach, based on the principles of atrium smoke management outlined in Construction Technology Update No. 47, can be used to meet the requirements of applicable building codes for a particular building use and design. This Update discusses various engineered approaches to the design of smoke management systems, which typically involve the use of mechanical exhaust systems to limit the accumulation and migration of smoke.
