 Abstract
This study examined the effects of the wind conditions, such as wind velocity and wind directions, on the performance of the mechanical smoke exhaust systems for high-rise building fires. A scaled model design and CFD simulations were used to verify the effects both quantitatively and qualitatively. The results showed that the smoke exhaust velocity of the mechanical exhaust system can be reduced by up to 17% at a wind velocity of 5 m/s (equivalent to an outdoor wind speed of 16 m/s) and a wind direction of ${\theta}
