Abstract: The safety issue is always being popular topic for the building construction, especially with large-scale building. For example, how to lead the people accurately to reach the safe and appropriate emergency exit in time in the large-scale building, and to prevent the great injuries and deaths. Therefore, it has become an urgent subject to the government to design 2D computer simulation software of dynamical evacuation route with using the C# (C Sharp Program Language) for understanding the necessary time for people fleeing from a fire within the large-scale building. This study mainly applied two steps including 2D computer simulation software to build and construct 3D virtual reality; and then to carry on the 3D virtual reality testing and questionnaire investigation. The finding of this research can ensure all people reach the emergency exit in time in every floor safely, and meanwhile reduce the time and being out the building. The result of this study is intended to provide the appropriate management model in safety system.
