Abstract
This report contains a fire safety evaluation of Borgsmoskolan in Norrköping, Sweden. It is a school for 13 to 15 years old children. There are totally 430 people in the school. The purpose is to look at individual safety. Computer simulations with Simulex has been used to see how long time evacuation takes in some different scenarios, and fire modelling has been made with CFAST to see how long it takes before critical conditions occurs in the building. Some hand-calculations have also been made to be compared with the results of the computerprograms.
Suggestions to increase the invidual safety in case of a fire are made, based on the results of the simulations. The result from the simulations is that a new evacuation alarm must be... (More)
