  • Importance of Dry Risers for Fire Safety

    Fighting fires in high rise buildings is challenging. It would not be possible for firemen to just aim their hoses from the ground floor and hope to reach those floors that are higher up. It would also not be feasible for them to run up flights of stairs trailing a hose behind them. Many high rise buildings can have twenty floors or more and a fire can happen anywhere. The ability to get water to ...

Churches are important symbols and the cultural-historical value is in most cases very high. The installation of a fire suppression system is often the best measure for improving fire protection. This paper ...

  • Field Model Analysis and Experimental Assessment of Fire Severity and Smoke Movement in a Partitioned and a Non-partitioned Dwelling Unit

    Inter-compartment smoke spread in a dwelling unit is greatly impeded by the presence of partition walls. For the same fire load and floor area, smoke movement and associated fire severity for a non-partitioned (NP) unit are different from those of a partitioned (PT) unit. To study the smoke movement and gas temperature evolution, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis is carried out for a ...
