Abstract – When a fire breaks out in a building, a large amount of smoke is generated at high temperature leading to poor visibility and difficulty in evacuation. In most cases, the victims are poisoned or starved of oxygen by the smoke. In addition, the smoke also causes damage to neighboring buildings. We use FDS (Fire Dynamics Simulator) model for designing and checking the effectiveness of the smoke ventilation system. The applications of this model are used extensively in car parks, atriums, tunnels, hospitals, airports and shopping complex etc.
