AbstractVentilation is an important factor influencing the rate of burning in building fires. As very little information has been available on this subject, it was decided to take measurements during the course of the St. Lawrence experimental building fires carried out at Aultsville, Ontario, by the Fire Section of the Division of Building Research, National Research Council. Inlet air speed was measured and the scope of this note is confined to a theoretical investigation of the air speeds to be expected, instrumentation, and a statement of results.
