Abstract
The purpose of this project was to evaluate the fire safety of a shopping mall called Kärnan. The whole project has been carried out as a part of the students' education. The most important part of the evaluation has been the safety of the occupants in case of a fire. As a result of this a lot of different estimations have been made, such as the size of the fire, its location in the building and what the burning material might be. In addition, estimations of how many people that would be affected of a fire or an evacuation of the building has been made. CFAST, ARGOS, SIMULEX and FDS have been used as tools in the evaluation process.
These computer programs generate a lot of different outputs for example the smoke filling process of the... (More)

These computer programs generate a lot of different outputs for example the smoke filling process of the building and the time of an evacuation from it. Furthermore a description of the building itself, the shops and different fire precautions has been included. (Less)
