The current study conducted controlled gas-burner tests in purpose-built single- and two-story structures instrumented throughout with thermocouples, pressure transducers, and bi-directional probes.



The study was conducted because the fire-modeling community currently lacks full-scale data from tests conducted in realistic residential-style structures. The experiments conducted consisted of sequences of ventilation events. The data collected in these tests was intended to provide several new validation cases for the fire modeling community.
