Abstract
In a recently published article (Poreh et al., Fire Saf J 43(5):344-350, 2008), Poreh et al. carried out a number of experiments in a small-scale atrium. They investigated the mass flow of the spill plume in case of fire emerging from an adjacent room or corridor. Based on these experiments, the equation for the mass flow rates of adhered spill plumes in atria was adjusted. In our article, we repeat the experiments in a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) program. The results agree well, both with the experiments and the suggested formula. After this first validation, large-scale CFD-simulations are carried out. It appears that the equation suggested by Poreh et al. is only valid in the case of a uniform smoke layer depth. If the smoke layer has a more complex configuration, the formula is no longer reliable for the design of the smoke and heat exhaust ventilation system.
