Daniel Rosberg - WSP Sverige AB
During 2012-2013 the Swedish sub-chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (Chapter 47, BIV) performed a project to develop a Swedish best practice guideline to ensure better use of CFD-modelling when performing available safe egress time analysis (ASET analysis).
The purpose of the project was to increase the knowledge and ability to handle the new requirements given by the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning and to improve the quality when analysing ASET analysis with advanced fire models.
The purpose of this paper is to spread the knowledge of the working process and to describe how different organisations within Sweden have collaborated to deal with issues concerning CFD-modelling. The paper also presents some of the technical aspects that the work generated to increase the knowledge concerning the use of FDS.
