This master thesis addresses the effect of materials and security systems used in high-rise
office buildings have on the evolution and spreading of fire.
The first part of the thesis is a brief introduction to the nature of fire, how and why fire can
develop. Also are described the three elements of triangle of fire (hazards of materials,
sources of oxidants and sources of heat energy) as well as the effects of fire on people and the
evolution of construction of high-rise buildings.
In the second part of the thesis, are performed the simulations with different configurations
and situations using the simulation tool FDS 5.2.0. Each simulation has a simulation report
which explains what, how and why is happening in the simulation.
The third and last part of the thesis is performed the analysis and comparisons between some
cases with the aim of draw conclusions about the influence of materials and security systems
in the evolution and spreading of fire.
