Wednesday, January 9, 2019  
Share |

Engineers, designers, inspectors and plan reviewers who develop, review, commission or approve smoke control systems — both beginners and seasoned professionals — will benefit from the depth and breadth of this two-day Smoke Control Essentials seminar on January 22-23, San Francisco, California. It offers essential information for developing effective fire strategies for innovative buildings and structures around the world.

The seminar uses case studies, interactive lectures and small teams working through practical examples to provide the fundamental concepts and underlying principles needed to design state-of-the-art systems effectively.

The program focuses on practical design, with topics including smoke control design strategies and analysis techniques for stairwell pressurization, elevator smoke control, zoned smoke control, and systems for atria and large spaces.

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe basic fire dynamics and factors affecting smoke movement
  • Describe the four basic smoke control methods, understand key design considerations for these very different methods, and understand where and how to apply each method
  • Understand the basic code requirements for high-rise buildings, atrium spaces, covered malls and underground structures
  • Apply smoke control principles to develop conceptual pressurization systems designs (stair pressurization, elevator pressurization and zoned systems)
  • Apply smoke control principles to develop conceptual designs
  • Understand basics principles of systems controls, system testing, integrated testing and special inspection

There are no prerequisites for this seminar.

Each participant will get a copy of the Handbook of Smoke Control Engineering, 2012 edition. Participants will take two five-question multiple choice quizzes at the end of each day and will have to pass with a minimum score of 70% to receive up to 1.3 CEUs | 13 PDHs to receive certificates of attendance.

Learning by doing is best! Only 10 spots remain in this seminar, so please register as soon as possible.
