Analysis escape routes atrium
For Santbergen Advies- en Ingenieursbureau, Actiflow performed CFD simulations to inform the fire department of the fire safety at the atrium of this apartment building. The goal of the project was to examine the temperature, the radiation and the visibility along the escape routes.
A time dependent CFD simulation was used to capture all physical phenomena. The simulation results showed one particular area where the visibility was problematic. Together with our customer, an innovative solution was found to influence the smoke dispersion and consequently to improve the visibility. Through new simulations, the fire department could be convinced of the positive effects of the measures taken, so that the building would meet all safety requirements.
