Abstract
The main objective is to investigate if hypoxic environment is a viable fire prevention method in occupied enclosures. Hypoxic environment is a technique where the oxygen concentration is constantly reduced inside an enclosure. The purpose with the technique is to prevent fires and in case of a fire reduce the risk for fire spreading. The risks are studied and different reduced oxygen concentrations have been analysed. Suitable objects and activities are discussed which illustrate the issues and complications. The conclusions made in this study are possible to use as help when designing a hypoxic environment.
