Abstract
This report is written as a part of the educational programme Fire Protection Engineering at Lunds University. The purpose of the report is to evaluate the fire safety of Skövde Cultural Centre. Focus lies on evacuation and human safety and therefore structural stability and property damage have not been considered. The Cultural Centre is a large building that houses varying activities. Due to lack of time and resources delimitations have been made and only the dancehall and the theatre have been studied in this report. Three possible scenarios have been chosen and evaluated through calculations and computer simulations. The times to critical conditions have been compared with the time needed for evacuation and conclusions for the theatre... (More)

Focus lies on evacuation and human safety and therefore structural stability and property damage have not been considered. The Cultural Centre is a large building that houses varying activities. Due to lack of time and resources delimitations have been made and only the dancehall and the theatre have been studied in this report. Three possible scenarios have been chosen and evaluated through calculations and computer simulations. The times to critical conditions have been compared with the time needed for evacuation and conclusions for the theatre and the dancehall have been drawn. With the existing conditions in the theatre today a safe evacuation can be performed. A number of suggestions on how to assure that it will stay that way have been proposed. In the dancehall though, the results show that a safe evacuation cannot be performed and suggestions of improvements and changes have been presented. (Less)
