Lawrence J. Marchetti, P.E.
This 3-hour course utilizes Section 7, Chapter 6 from the NFPA Fire Protection Handbook, 18th Edition, Smoke Movement in Buildings by John H. Klote D.Sc., PE and Harold E. Nelson, PE. This course includes brief introductory materials on smoke movement in buildings and provides information on the techniques used to evaluate the physical characteristics of smoke movement through both short and tall buildings as a basis for designing smoke control systems. It also covers the approaches that can be used to test the effectiveness of designed smoke control systems in the absence of actual performance tests involving test fires.
This course includes a True-False quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
