The pictures are as follows:

Figure 1. Bfc grid used in the simulations.
Figure 2. Velocity field in a cylindrical section through the fire.
Figure 3. Comparison between numerical and experimental centre-line pressures.In this case a 50.7 kW fire was simulated.
Figure 4. Comparison between numerical and experimental centre-line temperature stratification at two distances from the rear of the cabin.
Figure 5. Temperature contours in a cylindrical section located midway between the rear of the cabin and the fire, for the cases (a) without venting, (b) with forward venting and (c) reverse venting.
