This paper describes a computer program developed to
analyze systems intended to control smoke in building
fires. These systems include pressurized stairwells,
pressurized elevator shafts, one smoke control systems,
and pressurized corridors. This program calculates air
flows and differential pressures throughout a building
in which a smoke control system is operating. The basic
assumptions and limitations of the program are also
discussed. The appendices contain a program listing and
