  28. 28. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Engineering Guide History: lessons learned One Meridian Plaza, Philadelphia, Feb. 23, 1991 • The need for sprinkler protection having redundant water supply • Curtain walls should be protected to limit fire & smoke spread at exterior walls between floors. • Annual inspection and testing of the pressure reducing valves is needed. • Fire alarm systems for high rise buildings should be connected to a supervisory service. • Primary and secondary power should be routed independently. Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  29. 29. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Engineering Guide History: lessons learned Windsor Tower, Madrid, Spain – February 12, 2005 • High rise buildings need sprinkler protection having redundant water supply. • Curtain walls should be protected to limit fire and smoke spread at the exterior wall between floors. • Vertical openings, including stairways and elevator shafts, need to be protected to limit smoke and fire spread between floors. Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  30. 30. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Evacuation Strategies 1- Simultaneous Evacuation • Evacuation of all building occupants on all floors, egressing at the same time • It might be adopted for tall buildings in non-fire scenarios • It causes large-scale disruption • Egress components require greater width than those required for other evacuation strategies Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  31. 31. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Evacuation Strategies 2- Phased / staged / sequential Evacuation • Evacuating people in the immediate vicinity of the fire, firstly. • Occupants outside the evacuation zone are either notified or are given no warning • Initial evacuation zone is determined on a case-by- case basis • The philosophy adopted is the initial evacuation of the fire floor + above floors (2 to 3) + below floors (2 to 3) • It requires a good level of fire and smoke resistant compartmentation between evacuation zones Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  32. 32. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Evacuation Strategies 3- Progressive Evacuation • The same as phased evacuation, except that the occupants are evacuated to a safe area within the building • Occupants will either remain, or be relocated to an alternative safe area • The relocation of occupants can either be horizontal or vertical • Tall buildings (relatively small footprints) generally adopt the vertical form • One notable exception is the sky bridge connecting twin towers; e.g. Highlight Towers in Munich and Petronas building in Kuala Lumpur. Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  33. 33. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Evacuation Strategies 3- Progressive Evacuation Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  34. 34. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Evacuation Strategies 4- Full/Total Building Evacuation • Using protected stairways to reduced level of risk from fire and smoke. • Protected elevators can be also used. • Minimizing evacuation time is crucial. • In Taipei 101 in Taiwan, total evacuation time was 2.5hrs when using only the egress stairs. • Incorporating the use of elevators resulted in a reduction in the overall evacuation time to 1 hr. Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  35. 35. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Evacuation Strategies 5- Hybrid/Combined Strategies • Many modern tall buildings contain more than one occupancy types; hotel, offices, restaurants, cafes, etc. • Tall buildings may have a separate evacuation strategy for each individual occupancy. • Vertical egress components can be shared among various occupancies. • The combination of strategies should be tested. Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  36. 36. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings How to reduce the evacuation time? Components of Egress • Exit discounting (an exit can be lost in the event of a fire) • Horizontal Stair Transfers (the need to transfer floors or corridors) • Effective wayfinding/exit signage • Egress discharge locations (safe, away from car movement paths and sufficient) Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  37. 37. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings How to reduce the evacuation time? Elevator Evacuation Elevators can play the following roles: • For use by the fire department in their fire fighting operations. • For use by fire-fighters to shuttle equipment. • For use by the fire department to assist in rescue operations. • For use by disabled occupants for evacuation, or others unable to use the stairways. • For use by all of, or a portion of the general building population for evacuation. Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  38. 38. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings How to reduce the evacuation time? Training and communication • Fire fighting department. • Occupants. • Training should not be restricted to classrooms; it should include practical training. • Training should be periodical (scheduled). Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  39. 39. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Supplemental escape equipment • Helicopters for Egress/Rooftop Helipads • This might conflict with the use of green roofs and PV cells • Number of evacuees is relatively small. • Direction of movement is then upwards; conflicting with those getting downwards. Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  40. 40. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Protecting building occupants in place (Refuge Floors) • Creating safe areas within the building to which occupants can be relocated (areas of refuge / refuge floors) • Waiting for an evacuation elevator • Included protected elevator lobbies or stairway landings • Fully protected by sprinklers • With openings to the exterior on opposing sides to prevent smoke accumulation • Re-entry is allowed • Sky lobbies • Areas (or even whole floors) where transfer between various elevator groups can be achieved in order to reach the desired floor • Sky lobby areas may share a level with mechanical equipment Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  41. 41. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings When ‘refuge floors’ are needed? • Korea: building height > 50 stories or 200m • Hong Kong: building height > 25 stories • KSA: building height > 30 stories • India: building height > 24 stories Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  42. 42. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Development of Egress Plan • What are the anticipated credible events? • How a fire is detected? • How are occupants alerted? • How are emergency responders alerted? • How will occupants and fire department personnel interact? • Where will the occupants go? • How are occupants being accounted for? • Will elevators be used? Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  43. 43. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Building Fire Modelling • FDS (Fire Dynamics Simulator) is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow. The software solves numerically a form of the Navier-Stokes equations appropriate for low- speed, thermally-driven flow, with an emphasis on smoke and heat transport from fires. • CFAST (Consolidated Model of Fire and Smoke Transport) is a two-zone fire model used to calculate the evolving distribution of smoke, fire gases and temperature throughout compartments of a building during a fire. Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
  44. 44. Engineering Guide: Fire and Life Safety for Tall Buildings Structural Fire Analysis Structural fire analysis means analyzing the structural systems under realistic fire conditions. This type of approach typically involves: • Evaluation of realistic fire scenarios in and around the building. • Calculation of the heat transfer from the fire(s) to the structural elements. • Quantification of the structure’s response. Life Safety and Security for Buildings Dr. Khaled Ali Youssef Arab League Center, Crowne Plaza Dubai Deira Dubai - 2016
