Fire Dynamics Series: Predicting Hot Gas Layer Temperature and Smoke Layer Height in a Room Fire with Natural and Forced Ventilation

Lawrence J. Marchetti, PE, CFPS

The following course reviews selected fire protection fundamentals and describes the methodology for calculating the hot gas layer temperature and smoke layer height in a compartment fire. The following Fire Dynamics Course Material is from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and is referred to as “Fire Dynamics Tools” (FDTs). This course material was implemented by the NRC to assist their regional fire protection inspectors in performing fire hazard analysis (FHA). Although the material was prepared for NRC fire protection inspectors, the material presented is fundamental in nature and not specific to a nuclear power plant environment.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
