TL;DR: In this paper, a set of model scale experiments were carried out, to investigate the influence of different transverse fire locations on maximum smoke temperature under the tunnel ceiling, and the results showed that the restriction effect of the sidewalls of tunnels cause the maximum smoke temperatures under the ceiling to increase compared with the unconfined space, even fires occurs at the longitudinal centerline.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the effect of vertical shaft height on natural ventilation in urban road tunnel fires was investigated, and two special phenomena, plug-holing and turbulent boundary-layer separation were observed, both of which will influence the impact of smoke exhaust.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors quantificationally analyzed the effect of plug-holing on the smoke exhaust efficiency in road tunnel fires and found that about 2/3 of the smoke exhausting rate of the shaft is air.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the effect of stack effect on natural ventilation with increasing shaft height in urban road tunnel fires was analyzed by Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and it was shown that it is not the case that the higher the vertical shaft, the better the smoke exhausting effect.

TL;DR: In this article, a comprehensive technical review of passive wall systems in building envelopes while discussing their respective capabilities in optimizing energy efficiency is presented. But, the authors do not consider the impact of the passive wall system on the overall building environment.
Abstract: The building sector accounts for approximately 40% of total global energy usage. Energy consumption for space heating and cooling makes up 60% of the total consumed energy in buildings. This paper presents a comprehensive technical review of passive wall systems in building envelopes while discussing their respective capabilities in optimizing energy efficiency. Different types of energy efficient walls such as Trombe Walls, Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Walls, Double Skin Walls, and Green Walls are explored. Furthermore, novel concepts for optimizing energy efficiency in building envelopes are also introduced. Finally the utilization of passive wall systems to save energy while improving the building environmental impacts is discussed.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors analyzed the physics characteristics of the flame plume temperature, induced by a ceiling jet and their coupling with an extraction flow, using a ceiling smoke extraction. And the results indicated that the new global model can effectively predict experimental data.
