**PyroSim / Tenability within Means of Escape**

« **on:**November 11, 2018, 12:38:08 pm »

I have a scenario where I am trying to measure the radiative heat transfer and subsequent tenability within an open plan apartment and the relationship between cooking facilities and the means of escape.

I have inserted a slice file within Pyrosim which measures radiation loss however the units at Kw/m3 and not Kw/m2 therefore perhaps I am measuring the wrong parameter.

I am considering using a hand calculation where:

q=Stefan-boltzman constant x T(absolute temp in Kelvin) x A (area of emitting body)

Would the forum agree this is the correct formula or is there another formula to prove that the radiative heat does not exceed 2.5Kw/m2?

If anyone has used this formula, is the temperature measured at the source of at the various points along the MoE?
