Abstract
The report contains an evaluation of the fire safety at Linden shopping centre in Norrköping, Sweden. The evaluation concerns evacuation times, fire development, smoke filling and smoke layer temperatures. The modelling has been executed with the computer models FDS, ARGOS, AST/CFAST and SIMULEX which were validated with hand calculations. The
report includes suggestions for improvement of the buildings fire safety design. The result of the analysis shows that in case of fire the existing manually activated egress alarm does not insure the visitors to be aware the danger in reasonable time. This problem exists mainly
because the egress alarm may not be activated at all because of human failure. It is strongly recommended that the... (More)

because the egress alarm may not be activated at all because of human failure. It is strongly recommended that the activation of the egress alarm should be connected to the sprinkler system. In addition to this recommendation, several other suggestions are made such as to
verify the sprinkler water supply and preassure, retrofit emergency door handles and implement a systematic fire safety organization. (In Swedish, 2003). (Less)
