Abstract
This report is a fire safety evaluation of Hedemora Stadshotell, Sweden. The hotel is a two-storey building from 1860. The purpose is to evaluate the safety of people during evacuation, in case of fire. Structural damages and property loss is not taken into account. Four scenarios that represent critical fires, most likely to occur in the hotel, were chosen. For each scenario, the time to critical conditions was calculated with the two-zone model program CFAST. Smoke layer height, visibility, temperature and heat radiation were the studied parameters. The time was compared with the evacuation time calculated in the program Simulex. The conclusion is that a satisfying evacuation can not be carried out before critical conditions occur. This... (More)
