This book presents basic concepts of performance-based fire safety engineering, which is "an engineering approach to fire protection design based on (1) agreed upon fire safety goals, loss objectives, and design objectives; (2) deterministic and probabilistic evaluation of fire initiation, growth, and development; (3) the physical and chemical properties of fire and fire effluents; and (4) quantitative assessment of the effectiveness of design alternatives against loss objectives and performance objectives.


This illustrated book includes chapters on the relationship of performance-based design and codes, applications of fire dynamics to performance-based design, hazard analysis and risk assessment, performance criteria, human factors considerations, the role of modeling, suggestions for documenting the performance-based fire safety analysis and design process, and a case study. Extensive references are included in each chapter. (Hardbound, 260 pp., 1997)
