  title={A Revised Correlation on Downstream Temperature Distribution of Fire-Induced Flow with Mechanical Longitudinal Ventilation},
  author={Shuya Li and Y. Zhao and W. Wang},
To evaluate the stability of smoke stratification and fire evacuation effectively, the temperature distribution downstream the fire beneath the ceiling of tunnels with mechanical longitudinal ventilation needs to be estimated. Based on Li model, a revised correlation is proposed by concerning the effects of the mechanical longitudinal ventilation velocity and the width of the tunnel. Ten full-scale field test data in three real tunnels from Hu et al. are employed to correlate the revised… Expand


Fire-induced flow temperature along tunnels with longitudinal ventilation
The temperature distribution of fire-induced flow beneath the ceiling of tunnels or corridors with longitudinal ventilation needs to be estimated in order to properly design the fire detectors andExpand
Temperature distribution of fire-induced flow along tunnels under natural ventilation
A simple correlation is theoretically presented and numerically studied for the temperature distribution of fire-induced flow along tunnel ceiling, which could correlate the flow temperature forExpand
Experimental and Numerical Studies on Longitudinal Smoke Temperature Distribution Upstream and Downstream from the Fire in a Road Tunnel
Four full-scale tests are conducted in a real road tunnel, with ceiling jet temperature distributions measured 200 m upstream and downstream from the fire. Two sizes of pool fires, 1.8 and 3.2 MW,Expand
An Experimental Study of the Effect of the Aspect Ratio on the Critical Velocity in Longitudinal Ventilation Tunnel Fires
In this study, the critical velocity was investigated with various aspect ratios (0.5, 0.667, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) of the tunnel cross-section in tunnel fires. Reduced-scale experiments were carried outExpand
An experimental investigation and correlation on buoyant gas temperature below ceiling in a slopping tunnel fire
Abstract The effect of tunnel slope on the fire induced hot gas temperature profile beneath the ceiling has not been clarified nor included in existing models. Thus, in this paper experiments areExpand
The maximum temperature of buoyancy-driven smoke flow beneath the ceiling in tunnel fires
The investigation presented here considers only the cases when the continuous flame region is lower than the ceiling height and the maximum excess gas temperature varies as the −5/3 power of the vertical distance between the fire source bottom and tunnel ceiling. Expand
Fire properties in near field of square fire source with longitudinal ventilation in tunnels
In order to understand fire phenomena in the near field of a fire source in a tunnel, experiments were conducted using three kinds of model tunnels of which the dimensions were 1/10 scale, 1/2 scaleExpand
The flow of fire gases under a beamed ceiling
Abstract A simple model is presented of the ceiling flow induced by fire centrally located at the floor between two long unobstructed ceiling beams of such depth that no fire gases are able to leakExpand
Experimental study on buoyant flow stratification induced by a fire in a horizontal channel
Experiments were carried out in a reduced-scale horizontal channel to investigate the fire-induced buoyant flow stratification behavior, with the effect of the velocity shear between the hot buoyantExpand
Development and Validation of Corridor Flow Submodel for CFAST
The modeling of fire and smoke spread is an evolvingfield. As knowledge is acquired and resources become available, models are enhanced to make their predictions more accurate and/or theirExpand
