G C Barney

Wednesday 1st June 1988

Formulae for the calculation of passenger handling performance of lift systems are well known. Lift makers use tables applicable to their product range to estimate Round Trip Times, Interval, Handling Capacity, etc. Tables are sometimes included in codes of practice. BS5655: Part 6: 1985 provides performance data tables in BS5655 and shows their limitations. The ISO 4190/6 standard and CIBSE Guide are also reviewed. The paper goes on to present a new set of design tables for general use.
