The fire modeling community currently lacks full-scale experi- mental data from fires in residential-style structures with heat- ing, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Further, there is an absence of data quantifying the generation of H2O due to combustion and the subsequent transport of those gases with a structure. Propane gas burner fire experiments were con- ducted in a purpose-built two-story structure instrumented to measure temperature, pressure, velocity, and gas concentrations. Experiments were conducted to assess heat and gas species trans- fer due to HVAC operating status (off vs. on), fire location and heat release rate, and bedroom door position (open vs. closed).
