AbstractA computer study of smoke movement using a mathematical model of a 20-storey building is described. The model is based on measured air leakage characteristics of four tall office buildings. The results indicate the relative influence of a number of features governing smoke movement in buildings. Smoke concentration patterns caused by stack effect are determined for both steady and transient conditions.
