Predicting Capability Of A Multiroom Fire Model

Nakamura, K. and Tanaka, T., 1989. Predicting Capability Of A Multiroom Fire Model. Fire Safety Science 2: 907-916. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.2-907


Several refinements were made on the two layers zone model previously developed by Tanaka in an attempt to provide engineering means to predict fire behavior in buildings. One of the refinements is that partial penetration model of upward and downward plumes across layer interfaces was introduced. By using this plume partial penetration model, the predicting capability of the multi-room fire spread model has been significantly refined.
