Nowadays it is standard practice that the central heating is adjustable and every heater is fitted with a thermostatic valve for adjusting heating to the variable heat demand in a given room.
The aim of the presentation was to present the results of research of a fire development in a multi-storey residential building, without corridors. The research was carried out on a specially created test stand in a 9-storey building. The research space included an apartment and an adjacent staircase. The research included several fire tests.
How to properly design a pressure differential system (PDS) on a staircase? This task is relatively simple in simple buildings. However, it is difficult in complex buildings, e.g. high-rise buildings or power plants.
Limited space for investment has made constructing underground garages as part of buildings increasingly popular in our country. In particular, this is true for large city centres, where the number of parking spots in the streets is smaller than the number of drivers looking for a parking space. As a result underground and multi-storey car parks are becoming more popular.
Stairwell smoke ventilation systems in medium-rise buildings – physical tests at a test facility in Sosnowiec under “Safe Evacuation” project
This paper discusses an extensive programme of tests and numerical analyses on vertical escape route smoke ventilation in multi-story buildings described on the project ...
Many civil structures in which a fire ventilation system needs to be fitted are non-standard, complex, or simply so large that events, whose impact on performance in smaller structures is negligible, must be taken into account. One of such structures is the railway tunnel of Nowa Łódź Fabryczna railway station.
Our company collaborates with technical universities on various research projects. One of the projects involved road tunnel research by the Silesian University of Technology conducted in Laliki, Śląskie province.
