Fire safety apartment De Hovenmeester

The Hovenmeester is an apartment building with a courtyard. Actiflow was asked to research the fire safety of the building, focussing on the escape routes.

In case of a fire, reduced visibility due to smoke and radiative heat transfer were expected to be the major threats. The fire inspection required that the radiation level would not exceed a certain threshold and they had clear demands about the visibility along the escape routes. Using a CFD solver dedicated to the simulation of fire and smoke, the visibility and radiation were studied, so the safety of the escape routes could be evaluated and improved.
