RR255 - Evaluation of CFD to predict smoke movement in complex enclosed spaces

To investigate the capabilities and limitations of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to predict the transport of smoke in complex enclosed spaces. Despite a lack of validation for this application, CFD is increasingly used in safety cases as a predictive tool to demonstrate the effectiveness of modern building designs and/or emergency ventilation to control the movement of smoke in the event of a fire.
