Underground Car Park Smoke Control Design
Modern fire of synthetic nature generates large amount of smoke particles on top of high heat release rate. Car fire in underground car park should it happened deals not only with synthetic fire but also potential explosive environment. Vehicle fire in enclosed environment posed a problem for evacuation as well as search and rescue operation not to mentioned location of fire source of origin with rapid heat and smoke propagation. This training session look at the danger of car fire in underground basement car park and implication for evacuation, the design Codes and Standards, UBBL requirements, appropriate smoke extract systems, advantage and limitation of types of smoke attract systems and compatibility between smoke extract system and sprinkler systems, full-scale fire investigation on jet fan.

For underground car park smoke extract system, the objective and fundamentals should be clearly defined in order to achieve the desired result of live safety for both public and firefighters.
All systems designed should also have clear criteria for validation to ensure system function to meet design objectives. Paper will also look at design principle of “Ventilation”, “Smoke Extraction”, “Dilution” and “Smoke Layers”.

All design consultants, smoke extract design engineers, system suppliers are encourage attending.
