  • fire protection system in the car park comprises a smoke exhaust ventilation system with a number of strategically placed jet fans that transport the air smoke mixture towards the extraction fans The system is intended to ensure the safe escape of the occupants from the various car park levels by maintaining any smoke layer above the heads of the people The PHOENICS model simulated two levels of the car park and included such details as ceiling mounted ventilators extract fans columns dividing and external walls ramps and other internal structures The task was to predict fire and smoke movement in the underground car park for a number of ventilation designs PHOENICS was used to simulate a car fire on the lower level by means of a time dependent source of heat and smoke thermal radiation was modelled by means of the computationally efficient and pragmatic IMMERSOL model The final design for fire containment employed jet fans on the upper level to force air down towards an extract fan located on the lower level The PHOENICS INFORM facility was employed to specify via the pre processor a smoke dependent gas emissivity In addition INFORM was used by Rucon to introduce their

  • Underground Garage: Ventilation and Fire Study
    end of the garage from the open entrance Under normal circumstances only one shaft is used but both are used during a fire emergency Additional control over the air flow is provided by a number of jet fans near the roof Under regular conditions the air is extracted via the shafts and is drawn in through the garage entrance but all elements of the system are bi directional this means that the flow direction for emergency ventilation can be selected to maximise the time for evacuation and fire fighting and to minimise the risk of the fire spreading to the rest of the building The basic purpose of the ventilation system is that it should avoid the build up of excessive exhaust fumes This requires an adequate air flow in all parts of the space dead zones are to be avoided The regular ventilation system draws air through the garage but some of the jet fans near the centre are operating to force flow back towards the entrance This is intended to maintain air movement and mixing The figure shows streamlines coloured by time it is apparent at least qualitatively that the air reaches almost all of the garage in a satisfactory manner During a fire the requirements are rather different the garage must be kept free of smoke in such a way that suppression by the fire brigade is possible The simulations assumed a heat source of 5MW typical of the burning of one large car or two small ones The worst case scenario was considered to be when the garage was free of other parked cars because in that case the ventilation system has to handle a larger air volume In view of the location of the fire the ventilation direction was reversed with air entering through the

  • Multi-Storey Car Park: Fire Study
    building Eight ventilation shafts are used with two feeding air into the car park at each corner on each level the total forced air flow is about 14m 3 s on each floor The location of these air inlets can be seen on the figure shown in colour On the upper storeys the ventilation is natural although there are walls around the parking levels these are mainly open 35 blockage factor The aim of the simulations was to investigate the movement of air heat and smoke in the case of a car fire in the underground part of the building the lowest level was chosen for the fire location The size of the fire was set at 8MW roughly equivalent to two or three cars The simulations were steady state designed to investigate the worst case scenario and to show the path that would be taken by the hot gases and smoke from the fire The combustion process was not included in the simulation and radiation was also omitted so the case corresponds to a real fire that has a higher heat release by about 10 20 The first figure above shows temperature contours on a plane through the central space of the car park note that all temperatures above 100 C are shown in red and that some of the structures have been made semi transparent for clarity The hot gases eventually rise harmlessly out of the car park away from any people dispersed by the wind from the left of the picture However before that they spread to the level above the fire itself location shown as a red object in the foreground because the forced ventilation is not strong enough to drive them to the central space The second figure shows the 40 C temperature isosurface It

  • Madrid Xanadu Shopping Mall Fire Study
    simulations The first figure shows temperature contours at head height on the upper level It is clear that the temperature is dangerously high when there are no vents and that the vents reduce this to a level which is little higher than the ambient temperature 30ºC the smoke concentration contours show the same effect The second figure shows streamlines emanating from the fire The reason for the difference in the temperature contours is clear Without the vents the hot and smoky air fills the domed roof and can only escape through the walkway the worst thing that could happen The vents enable the hot air to escape easily in fact the number or size could easily be reduced without compromising the safety of the building Note the blue contours showing the path of the air before it is entrained into the fire it is drawn in along the full length of the lower level of the hall The PHOENICS simulations enabled a good understanding of the air flow in the food hall to be obtained under the assumed fire conditions The effectiveness of the high level vents could be demonstrated enabling the modified design to be validated The whole package of fire design measures of which the smoke control was a part resulted in an estimated saving of about 250000 euros and a solution more suited to the environment 2 Technical Summary The simulation of the Xanadu Shopping Mall posed no particular difficulties as far as modelling was concerned The fire was simply specified as a heat source of 2 5MW distributed over an arbitrary volume of 1 5m x 3 0m x 1 0m height placed inside the shop unit the smoke value was fixed at 1 0 within the fire volume so that values elsewhere would be relative
