Abstract:

This project looks at the hazard to life due to smoke migration through elevator hoistways and the effectiveness of methods to reduce that hazard. This report of this project is in two volumes. The first volume presents the analysis and discusses the results of that analysis (Klote, 2003). The second volume consists of the complete results of the tenability calculations.
