This module will look at step two. Step two is to determine the design fire size that will be used in determining the requirements of the smoke control system. Although growing fires are a more realistic prediction of the fire growth, it is the convention to use a steady state fire. This will generally be the most pessimistic assumption of the most likely largest fire size that the system will have to deal with. This may have to be determined by considering a number of potential outcomes and identifying worst case. It is essential for the safe operation of the system that the correct design fire size is adopted  

  We now want you to attempt exercise 1-5 and then view the model answers below Exercise 1
