It should be noted that the temperature increases reported above will be accompanied by expansion of the gases. 32) where the subscripts 1 and 2 refer to the initial and final states, assuming that P1 = P2 . However, if the volume remains constant there will be a similar, corresponding rise in pressure. Such large increases will be generated very rapidly if a flammable vapour/air mixture is ignited within a confined space (Chapter 3). This will almost certainly cause structural damage to a building unless measures have been incorporated to prevent the build-up of pressure.

15, in which calculated values of Hc,CO2 and Hc,CO are quoted. 4 potentially more accurate,5 the uncertainty in the values of Hc,CO2 and Hc,CO makes OCC a more reliable method to use. Nevertheless, CDG calorimetry has its value as a method to check the OCC results, particularly if there are insufficient oxygen measurements. For example, CDG calorimetry has been used successfully to derive a record of the rate of heat release in a full-scale tunnel fire for which the oxygen measurements were incomplete (Grant and Drysdale, 1997).

66 × 10−3 K−1 , at the reference state of 1 atmosphere and 0◦ C. β is the reciprocal of 273 K and is known as the coefficient of thermal expansion. It was first derived for gases by Gay-Lussac in 1802. If there is any density difference between adjacent masses of air, or indeed any other fluid, relative movement will occur. 4). 81 m/s2 ). 8 kPa (or 631 mm Hg). 2. For small values of y – for example, corresponding to the vertical dimension of a building – the difference in pressure between the ground and the upper floors will be very small.
