An Engineering Analysis Of Fire Development In The Hospice Of Southern Michigan, December 15, 1985

Nelson, H.E., 1989. An Engineering Analysis Of Fire Development In The Hospice Of Southern Michigan, December 15, 1985. Fire Safety Science 2: 927-938. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.2-927


ABSTRACT

An analysis of the development of fire and flow of smoke in a multi-fatality fire is presented. The analysis methods used are the least sophisticated available consistent with reasonable accuracy. Fire growth, flashover, pre- and post-flashover spread of products, and impact on victims is addressed. Issues relative to post-flashover combustion chemistry and post-flashover corridor flow are raised.
