  • An experimental study is carried out on a reduced scale tunnel model (scale reduction is 1:20). The main objective is to evaluate the longitudinal velocity induced into a tunnel when a fire plume continuously released is confined and extracted between two exhaust vents located on both sides of the fire source. For the experimental simulations, fire-induced smoke is simulated by an air and helium mix release. Smoke flow is symmetrical as regards the fire location and experiments are realized for… CONTINUE READING
