A 2006 Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF) project used the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator to investigate smoke detector spacing for spaces with deep beam pockets and level ceilings. One configuration evaluated in this research was a corridor configuration with varying beam depth, beam spacing, corridor width, and ceiling height. A subset of the modeled corridor configurations was conducted with full-scale experiments to validate the findings of the modeling study. This paper presents the… CONTINUE READING
