Six experiments from the Edinburgh Tall Building Fire Tests are analysed in order to understand the effects of ventilation on the characteristic thermal behaviour of large open-plan spaces, typical of contemporary architecture and tall buildings. These experiments systematically vary the fire spread mode and the ventilation characteristic to identify the resultant fire behaviour. The data herein includes semi-processed data, and the code used to analyse the data in order to quantify the distribution of energy and characteristic fire dynamics for each experiment.
