|Abstract:||Pressurized stairwells and pressurized elevators can be used as a means of providing a smoke free exit route during fire situations. This paper describes a computer program which analyzes systems intended to pressurize stairwells or elevator shafts. The basic assumptions and limitations of the program are also discussed. The appendices contain a program listing and examples.|
