Max. design pressure differences when all stairwell doors are closed is 0.551 in of Water The minimum aloowable pressure differences is 0.052 in of Water.

The value of flow area between stairwell and building (per floor) equals the lekage area of the stairwell wall plus the gaps around the closed doors ( 0.26 FT2 ), Asb = 0.02 .+ 0.26 = The temperature factor B = 7.64 x ( 1/Ts - 1/To) = 0.00073 in.of Water 0.28 FT 2

The pressure difference at the stairwell bottom is selected as Psbb = 0.080 in. of Water to provide an extra degree of protection above the minimum allowable valueof 0.052 in. of Water. The pressure difference from stairwell to building at stairwell top Psbt is calculated by the equation: Psbt = Psbb + [ ( B x Y x N ) / ( 1 + ( Asb / Abo )2 ) ] = 0.115 in. of Water

Thus, Psbt does not exceed the maximum aloowable pressure The flow rate Q of pressurization air is calculated from the equation: Q = 1740 x N x Asb x {[ (Psbt)3/2 - (Psbb)3/2 ] / [ (Psbt) - (Psbb) ] = 896 CFM 224 04.075571917516220 230 305 05
