Literature review on enclosure of elevator lobbies by David W Stroup( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A literature survey was conducted to explore the need and appropriate systems for protecting elevator lobbies from smoke migration. The focus is on smoke spread through elevator shafts and lobbies, building occupant and fire fighter use of elevators during fire emergencies, and computer software for evaluating elevator performance during fires. In conducting the literature review, a number of computerized library databases were examined, including some operated by the Federal government, academic institutions, and private industry. Some of the key words used in the various searches included: elevator, fire, smoke movement, smoke migration, lobby, fire fighting, emergency egress, and shaft. The results of the survey are organized into the following categories: smoke movement, occupant usage, fire fighter usage, and analysis software. Finally, recommendations for areas requiring additional research are provided

Comparison of FPETool -- FIRE SIMULATOR with data from full scale experiments by Robert L Vettori( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Generally, upper layer depth predictions were good only for situations where there was not a large vent from the room. For the full scale experiment conducted in a large room with a high ceiling, predicted link and ceiling jet temperatures had better agreement with measured values if consideration was given to the time required for the transport of the products of combustion from the fire to the link. For experiments which had varying fire growth rates, predictions for upper layer temperature increase were better for experiments with the slower fire growth rates
