# 14.8 CALCULATION 14.8.1 Example of Staircase and Lift Lobby Pressurisation System Calculation 14.8.1.

1 General Description of Building A 30 storey office building with 2 staircases constructed from ground floor up to roof level. Both staircases are connected to fire fighting lift lobbies, which in turn are connected to accommodation areas. There is only one single leaf door per floor for staircase. As for fire fighting lift lobby, there is only one single leaf door separating each lift lobby and the accommodation areas. There is one door connecting the lift lobby to a service shaft. However, this is not to be taken into account as it is opened into an enclosed area. Therefore, there are 30 doors in total for both staircase and fire fighting lift lobbies. Refer to Figure 14.1

14.8.1.2 Design Condition (i) The staircase and lift lobbies will be independently pressurised. (ii) All pressurisation shafts are not provided with sheet metal ductwork. (iii) According to UBBL, the no. of opened doors shall be minimum 2 nos. or no. of doors at 10% of the total floors (worst condition), whichever is higher. Hence, for this case study, there will be 3 floors where all staircase and lift lobby doors are assumed to be opened. (iv) The design of pressurisation system shall be based on constant speed fan with pressure relief system. 14.8.2 Sample Calculation for Staircase Pressurisation System 14.8.2.1 Estimation of Air Volume Flowing Past Doors When Doors Are Closed (i) Design criteria based on MS1472 (ii) Leakage Area Calculation: Based on 50 Pa pressure differential and interpolation of data from Table 3 and 4 (MS1472).

14.8.2.4 Estimation of Air Flow Past 3 Opened Doors (i) The size of each door is 2.00 m (H) 0.80 m (W) (ii) Therefore, area of door is 1.6 m (iii) Based on design criteria of 1 m/s air flow through door when the door is opened, air flowrate 1.6m x 1.0 m/s x 60 sec x 60 mm = 5,760 CMH (iv) For 3 opened doors, the air quantity = 5760 CMH x3 = 14.8.2.5 Selection of Capacity for Pressurisation Fan (i) The minimum air required = (A) + (B) = 6090 + 17280 CMH = 23,370 CMH (ii) Add 25% leakage factor (masonry shaft) = 29,213 CMH 17,280 CMH (B)

Note: If masonry shaft is of reinforced concrete, 10% leakage factor is adequate (iii) The airflow of fan selected: = 30,000 CMH

14.8.3.3 Calculation of Air Leakage through Glosed Lift Landing Doors Refer to Equation (14) of sub-section 5.3.2.3 of M51472 Equation: Qd = Qc x F / n where, Qd Qc F N

is the air leakage from one lobby past one lift door, is the air leakage for an isolated lift door (value taken from Table 4 or derived from Qc = 0,0496 x (PE)1/2 where PE is the pressurisation level for the lobby, is the factor depending on vent size in lift shaft and taken from the appropriate column of Table 6 (MS 1472), N is the number of pressurised lobby openings into the lift shaft Hence, when applied to;
