Fluid Dynamic Aspects Of Room Fires

Zukoski, E.E., 1986. Fluid Dynamic Aspects Of Room Fires. Fire Safety Science 1: 1-30. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.1-1


Several fluid dynamic processes which play important roles in the development of accidental fires in structures are discussed. They include a review of information concerning the characteristic flow regimes of fire plumes and the properties of the flow in these regimes, and a brief review of flow through openings and in ceiling jets. Factors which lead to the development of thermal stratification in ceiling layers are also discussed.
