Experiments of atrium fires

The Fluid Mechanics Research Group has taken part at experiments of atrium fires within large enclosures and smoke propagation, carried out at the Technological Center of Murcia (Spain). The goal was to characterize the fire and smoke evolution within large premises, like shopping centers, airport terminals, movie theaters, etc., so that new effcient protection and evacuation systems can be designed.

Further information about these experiments, that have drawn media attention, can be found under the following link (regional newspaper “La Verdad de Murcia”)

Dr. Cándido Gutiérrez describes the goal of the experiments during an interview of the regional  Newspaper (La Verdad)
