From the summary:'Experimental study on the visibility through fire smoke was carried out. The relation among the brightness of sign, visual distance, and the extinction coefficient of smoke at the instant of obscuration threshold was obtained by using the smoke chamber. The experimental results agreed well with the theoretical values. The visibility of the lighted sign obtained from the experiment is about (5~10)/&and that of the placard is about (2~4)/&.
