  2. 2. Spread of smoke and fire gases via the ventilation system

    University dissertation from Division of Building Science, Lund University

    Author : Polina Gordonova; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; compartment fires; fire flow; fire pressure; fire simulation; smoke spread; ventilation ducts; brandteknik; brand; brandspridning; rökspridning; ventilation; ventilationskanaler; beräkningsmodeller; datorprogram; simulering; teori;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the problem of smoke spread via ventilation ducts to adjacent room(s) in case of a compartment fire. The main goal is to examine the possibility of operating the fans during different fires in four types of buildings (compartments, hospitals, offices and hotels) and to estimate the risk of smoke spread in different conditions..

  3. 3. Meteoric Aerosols in the Middle Atmosphere

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Meteorologiska institutionen (MISU)

    Author : Linda Megner; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; meteoroid; meteor; nucleation; mesosphere; stratosphere; ablation; smoke; NLC; PMSE; PSC; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap; atmosfärvetenskap; Atmospheric Sciences;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the fate of the meteoric smoke in the Middle Atmosphere, and its effect on ice phenomena such as noctilucent clouds (NLC) and polar stratospheric clouds (PSC). The potential role of NLC as tracer for mesospheric processes and variability, and as a tool for monitoring this remote and inaccessible region, has generated substantial interest within the scientific community.
