An automatic sprinkler system is one of the most effective methods of controlling or suppressing the fire. Sprinklers are generally located at the ceiling level of the level of a• building. They are equipped with a fusible link that melts when the heat given off by a fire heats the sprinkler. Currently there is no sprinklers system that installed in UMP (Universiti Malaysia Pahang) lecture room. In this project by using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) a simulation of fire occurred is created to prove the effect of sprinkler in one of the lecture room (Block Y-BK8). For this simulation, assume that the fire happen due to shock circuit at personal computer. Now from CFD, simulation required finding out boundary condition in that room like power output of lamp and PC. Also air flow rate by air conditioner and sprinkler. From the result of simulation, the sprinkler system is effective if the fire occurred in the lecture room. As a conclusion, a sprinkler system can be installed as a precaution at the lecture room.
