The last several years have seen a wealth of new evidence on the health effects of exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke (SHS) the benefits of smoke-free environments and best practice in implementing smoke-free policies. Compiling and disseminating this evidence is critical to raising awareness among decision-makers and public health advocates about the necessity for smoke-free environments to protect health and their broad acceptance and endorsement. It is for this reason that WHO is now publishing policy recommendations on protection from SHS exposure.

Experimental smoke-filling tests were carried out in a single-story building. Trays of methanol were burnt. The fire gases were made visible by the use of artificial smoke added to the fire plume. This study concerned the effects on vents by varying the position & distribution of the inlet openings near the floor. The effects of dividing the building into two reservoirs by a smoke curtain were considered where the inflow of air into the fire reservoir was provided by the ceiling vents of the adjacent reservoir. Charts, tables & drawings.
