An investigation by CFD code named Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) with sub-model of evacuation used to modelling a human behaviour during fire in smart building. Using the numerical simulation method to prevent against fire hazards by computing the heat release rate HRR of fire, gas temperature, smoke propagation in a building and evacuation situation for various cases to develop an emergency plan coherent for smart building in case of fire hazard, by optimisation of human displacements, reducing evacuation time, detection of black points in buildings, evacuate people faster and safer.
