The Performance-Based Design of Evacuation of a Conference Center
According to the current China fire protection code, the main hall as a fire compartment and its evacuation distance in this conference center both over the standards. To solve the problems, the performance-based design is put forward in the paper, such as setting up the "Quasi safety zone". For the main hall, 4 fire scenarios have been designed, next simulated and analyzed. According the result, setting fire protection facilities such as mechanical smoke control system, can achieve safety of evacuation.
