This dataset contains thermocouple temperature data in °C obtained from Fire Dynamic Simulation (FDS) of a 5MW HRR polyurethane GM27 fire in a multi-storey Double Skin Façade (DSF) building with Venetian blinds. The Excel spreadsheet has temperature data obtained from thermocouples installed on the glazing surfaces in the DSF cavity for floors 2, 3 and 4 (see Physical Model and Thermocouple Map). The data is presented for the scenarios where there is no Venetian blind installed in the DSF cavity to when the Venetian blind is 0.5m away from the inner glazing, Middle and 0.5m away from the outer glazing in the DSF cavity. In these scenarios the dataset also shows the glazing surface temperatures for various Venetian blind slat angle openings of 135°, 90°, 45° and 0° in the three Venetian blind positions in the DSF cavity. The simulation was carried out at 100s per scenario. The dataset also contains the input and output data files obtained from the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Fire Dynamic Simulator (FDS) software used for the investigations. A PDF of the Physical Model and Thermocouple Position Map is also provided in this dataset to provide clarity for users of this dataset.
