Stability of smoke layer induced by a fire will be studied in this paper. A series of full-scale burning tests were carried out to study the interaction of the hot smoke layer with a sprinkler water spray. A new rig was built to give a smoke layer. The results show that the stability of a smoke layer will be disturbed by the discharged water spray. The operating pressure of the sprinkler system is a key point. When the smoke layer lost its stability, the dragging force acting on the smoke layer was found to be less than the buoyancy.
