Abstract : The INERIS Fire Gallery is one of the large scale test-rigs being at disposal of INERIS' researchers (and their financial Sponsors) to carry out experimental studies in the field of industrial risks and Environmental concems. Devoted especially to the fire problem, the Fire Test Gallery (fig. l) comprises a 50 m long horizontal wind tunnel of about 10 m2 cross section, ending in a 11 m high 'tower'. This vertical segment is divided into two operating zones : the upward rectangular cross section ( 6 m2) element, recently refitted with extended measuring facilities, is housing main of the gas sampling equipments connected to the 'mixing point'.
