This book summarises the advice available from the Fire Research Station of BRE to designers of Smoke and Heat Exhaust Ventilation Systems (SHEVS) for atria and other buildings. It provides practical guidance on the design of smoke-control systems. It reflects current knowledge and is based on published and unpublished research. It also draws on the authors experience of design features required for regulatory purposes in many individual smoke-control applications.
