Subtitle: An introductory guide

Ref Code: BR375
Authors: C Williams, E Perera, H Morgan, R Harrison, B Caplen and A Ferguson

Abstract1: This guide introduces the key principles of natural environmental ventilation and smoke control in the event of fire, considers how to combine these strategies to achieve a successful design, describes a simple design tool, and presents two examples and their design implications. The guide aims to increase awareness of the possibilities for combining natural environmental ventilation in atria with smoke control so this can be considered at the detailed design stage, thus optimising performance.
