Sprinkler, Vent, Draft Curtain Lnteraction - Experiments

Mcgrattan, K.B. and Sheppard, D., 2000. Sprinkler, Vent, Draft Curtain Lnteraction - Experiments. Fire Safety Science 6: 517-528. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.6-517


The International Fire Sprinkler, Smoke & Heat Vent, Draft Curtain Fire Test Project organized by the National Fire Protection Research Foundation (NFPRF) brought together a group of industrial sponsors to support and plan a series of large scale tests to study the interaction of sprinklers, roof vents and draft curtains of the type found in large warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and warehouse-like retail stores. Representatives from the sponsoring organizations, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and other interested parties planned 39 large scale fire tests that were conducted in the Large Scale Fire Test Facility at Underwriters Laboratories (UL) in Northbrook, Illinois.
