Abstract: Consequent to a big fire happened recently in a bar in Guangdong, China, there are more concerns on emergency evacuation in places for public entertainment. In this paper, emergency evacuation in such places will be studied. The associated safety codes and regulations in China are reviewed. Evacuation in a similar fire with detailed information released will be simulated to understand the problems concerned. Different ways on improving the emergency evacuation by varying the number of available exits, the width of the available exit and the stairway steps inside and outside the exits under different occupant loadings are studied. The results are useful for improving the emergency evacuation design and working out fire safety management in places for public entertainment.
