Smoke Control Course I: Fundamentals and Pressurization Systems
Share |


This one-day course addresses the fundamentals of smoke control, including the underlying principles of smoke control, a discussion of air moving equipment and systems, stairwell pressurization, elevator smoke control, zoned smoke control, automatic controls, and commissioning. Methods of design analysis of pressurization smoke control systems are addressed, including network computer modeling using CONTAM. Zone fire models are also addressed. A case study of pressurization smoke control is included.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Understand the codes and standards that define the design of smoke control systems.
  • Learn how fire suppression and smoke control systems are integrated.
  • Identify at least four design considerations for smoke control systems .



Target Audience

This seminar is intended for fire protection engineers and mechanical engineers who design smoke control systems. It is for both beginning engineers and experienced engineers who need to be up to date with the advances in this technology. The seminar will also benefit design project managers, manufacturers of equipment for air moving systems and code officials who need an understanding of this technology. Experience level: Intro.


Participants should bring with them the Handbook of Smoke Control Engineering (2012).

Course Assessment

Participants will be assessed via a written test. A passing score of 70% is required to obtain a Certificate of Completion.
