    Abstract

    The knowledge of fully developed room fires is reviewed fairly frequently, and research in this field is increasingly applicable to building design for designers who need to predict fire severity. In addition, there are several problems of general interest with relevance to other fields of fire safety, for example, stability of the system and the properties of the flame emerging from the window opening. This paper discusses these and other problems, along with some wider theoretical aspects of fully developed fires.
