Jointly published by the ICC and SFPE, A Guide to Smoke Control in the 2006 IBC, addresses smoke management and creates a bridge between smoke management and the code requirements of the IBC.
The 2006 IBC smoke control requirements are more performance-based than previous editions and allow engineers the flexibility to address particular fire hazards in building design. The 2006 edition includes a new reference for exhaust method design and facilitates the use of different types of models, such as network, zone, and computational fluid dynamics models.
The guide also features a section that deals with the commissioning and testing of smoke control systems. The authors are Dr. John H. Klote, PE, and Douglas H. Evans, PE, both of whom are expects in the field of fire protection engineering.
