A Calculation Method of Fully Developed Fire Temperature for Multi-Room Fire Spread Scenarios

Report Date: January 2007

Fire spread throughout a building is influenced by factors including geometry, fire size, and ventilation. This project from Kyoto University in Japan seeks to create a mathematical method to model the fire spread between rooms. To validate the work, the results of the mathematical model are compared with results from full-scale live fire experiments with the same conditions. The effects of ventilation opening sizes are examined. The results provide insight into fire spread and the characteristics of fuel limited and ventilation limited fires.

  • International Association for Fire Safety Science

    IAFSS was founded with the primary objective of encouraging research into the science of preventing and mitigating the adverse effects of fires and of providing a forum for presenting the results of such research.The International Association for Fire Safety Science perceives its role to lie in the scientific bases for achieving progress in unsolved fire problems. It will seek cooperation with other organizations, be they concerned with application or with the sciences that are fundamental to our interests in fire. It will seek to promote high standards, to encourage and stimulate scientists to address fire problems, to provide the necessary scientific foundations and means to facilitate applications aimed at reducing life and property loss. Since its inaugural meeting, the IAFSS has grown to more than four hundred members. Current members come from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Germany, Finland, France, Holland, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom and United States of America. The Association is legally established as a charitable organization in England and Wales.

  • Kyoto University

    The current rapid changes of the social environment have brought about a need to develop studies on architecture as a synthetic system as well as the studies in fundamental and advanced fields, in order to produce higher quality and multi-functional living space. Thus, it is essential to promote the integration of many different fields.

    In the department, innovative methodologies and fundamental and advanced knowledge in related fields are lectured on and investigated.
