AbstractSeveral mathematical models have been developed to study the dynamics of smoke/air movement in buildings, and to evaluate/develop smoke control techniques. This report presents a critical assessment of the major models. These models are developed by IRC/NRC, Canada; CPR/NBS, USA; Oscar Faber & partners/U.K.; BRI/Japan; and BRE/U.K. The assessment involves the capabilities, concept, assumptions and drawbacks of these models. This report also discusses the potential applications of smoke control modelling and sets the specifications of modelling requirements.
