About This Item

 

Full Description

Published in cooperation with ICC, NFPA, and SFPE, the Handbook of Smoke Control Engineering provides authoritative, comprehensive guidance on the latest in smoke control practice, incorporating the latest research and current engineering approaches.

With more than 500 pages of in-depth guidance, the handbook describes smoke control technology, including fundamental concepts, smoke control systems, and methods of analysis, and contains the information needed for the analysis of design fires, including considerations of sprinklers, shielded fires, and transient fuels. Systems discussed in the handbook include those for stairwell pressurization, elevator pressurization, zoned smoke control, and atrium smoke control. This is the first smoke control book with climatic data so that users will have easy-to-use weather data specifically for smoke control design for locations in the U.S., Canada, and throughout the world.

Following the success of Principles of Smoke Management in 2002, this new book adds coverage of topics including controls, fire and smoke control in transport tunnels, and full-scale fire testing. For those getting started with the computer models CONTAM and CFAST, there are simplified instructions with examples. Unique to previous smoke control literature, this handbook provides many example calculations to help designers prevent smoke damage.

It is extremely useful for practicing engineers, architects, code officials, researchers, and students.
