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
appendice contain a program listing and examples.
