Flow at vents is the major driving force in smoke
transport models. The precision with which we can
calculate these flows determines to a great extent how
accurately we can model buoyant flow and the inherent
speed of the models. This report describes some of the
problems encountered in calculating these flows, and
gives a general algorithm for their calculation.
