Hinkley, P.L., 1970. A PRELIMINARY NOTE ON THE MOVEMENT OF SMOKE IN AN ENCLOSED SHOPPING MALL. Fire Research Notes 806
The design of escape routes from enclosed pedestrian shopping malls in large town centre developments would be facilitated by a knowledge of the likely rate of spread of smoke should a fire occur. This note discusses the spread of smoke along a mall in the light of a tentative theory (given in detail elsewhere). Assuming the theory to be correct a fire 2 m x 2 m base area would smoke-log a mall 6 m wide and 3 m high for 70 m in both directions in about 2 1/2 minutes. A fire "flashing over" in a small shop could smoke-log the mall for 200 m in both directions in the same time. Further work to verify the theory will be carried out.
