Overpressure in airtight houses
Overpressure in airtight houses in case of a fire
Earlier performed studies towards fires in airtight dwellings call attention for the safety of residents and fire services in case of a fire. With experiments and simulations pressure peaks in an early stage of the fire were experienced, which makes it harder for residents to escape from the building [1,2]. The executed experiments and simulations focused on the building envelope and neglected balanced mechanical ventilation systems. The goal of the research was to gain insight in the influence of the balanced mechanical ventilation system on the overpressure in case of fire in airtight dwellings.
