> I'm looking for natural ventilation projects that have succesfully dealt
> with restrictive fire separation requirements.  Schools are of special
> interest, but any references would be helpful.
> The specific issue we are dealing with is a requirement in Chicago for
> 1-hour separation between classrooms and corridors; in the IBC there is no
> rating required in a sprinkled building.  This makes strategies using
> airflow through the corridor less feasible.  We are looking to show the
> city that others have succesfully and safely used this sort of strategy.
> Thanks and regards,
