Fire safety Design Based on Risk Assessment

Jönsson, Robert LU and Lundin, Johan LU (2000) In Fire Science and Technology 20(1). p.13-25
Abstract
The present paper concerns a performance-based fire safety analysis and design of a high-rise building. The resulting fire safety recommendations are compared with those specified by acceptable solutions in terms of the earlier prescriptive building code. The respective risk to life resulting from the analysis is compared and discussed. The benefit and need of using a risk based verification method as a complement to a deterministic fire safety engineering method is demonstrated. The cost-effectiveness of different solutions is also demonstrated. This paper is based on the results from a case-study presented at the 2nd International Conference on Performance-Based Codes and Fire Safety Design Methods in Maui 1998.
