 Abstract
Propane fires of 1000 to 3000 kW in the ISO 9705 fire room were simulated using FDS to study the problem of decreasing temperature with increasing fire size. A criterion is proposed for under-ventilated fires. The computed temperature at 2000 kW and above was lower than that at 1500 kW. The heat release rate was limited by a lack of oxygen in the simulation. It was found that the heat release rate can therefore be a criterion for under-ventilated fires in simulations. Fires of 1700 kW and above in the ISO 9705 fire room are predicted to be under-ventilated.
