UL Study on Ventilation and Fire Behavior
Horizontal Ventilation: Should we be re-examining our tactics?
Jerry Knapp wrote an interesting article for FireEngineering about a 2010 UL labs test on ventilation and fire behavior.
His article directed the reader to the UL study.
If you take the time to go through the entire program, there are some serious eye opening conclusions about horizontal ventilation.
Please take some time to look at it and then comment.
Even if you skip to the 4 panel videos and then go through the tactical considerations section you will get the gist.
