Design fire curves for BVG, Berlin
IFAB was contracted by the Berlin public transport system (BVG) to create a design fire curve for the metro vehicle types H and HK (large and small profile). This developed curve is used as a design fire curve for the smoke and evacuation simulations in all BVG stations in the future. The design fire curve is based on 4 different possible scenarios that all were simulated. The results of the most suitable scenario were chosen in order to create the final design curve.
