This guide summarizes the state‐of‐the‐art knowledge in the area of human behavior in fire. Any life safety design, whether prepared to meet prescriptive or performance-based codes, should consider human behavior. The anticipation of human behavior and prediction of human response is one of the most complex areas of fire protection engineering. This guide identifies both quantitative and qualitative information and resources in the literature. This information should be considered prior to developing safety factors or exercising engineering judgment in the practical design of buildings, the development of evacuation scenarios for performance-based designs and the estimation of evacuation response. This information may also be useful and applicable to post event analysis. (Hardbound, 48 pp., 2003)
