A series of hot smoke tests is underway in a warehouse for comparison with more realistic fire experiments. Hot smoke tests are used commonly in the fire safety assessment of large enclosures. COMPACT is used in the numerical prediction of the spread of smoke and hot gasses in the warehouse during hot smoke tests. The comparison of numerical results with the measurements indicate satisfactory agreement. COMPACT will be utilized next in the prediction of fire experiments, as a contribution to the use of CFD tools in the development of performance based fire codes.
