Verifying Fire Safety Design in Sprinklered Buildings

Abstract
This report contains a verification method that could be applied when

evaluating trail fire safety design in a performance-based code environment. The report is

focused on design alternatives (i.e. design alternatives) where fire sprinkler systems have an

important role. Three possible verification methods are proposed together with the

procedure on how they could be applied in design. The covered methods are both

qualitative and quantitative (deterministic as well as probabilistic). In order to get full

benefit of a sprinkler system installation, sprinkler performance data is presented together

with a new set of tenability criteria in sprinklered buildings and sprinklered... (More)
This report contains a verification method that could be applied when

evaluating trail fire safety design in a performance-based code environment. The report is

focused on design alternatives (i.e. design alternatives) where fire sprinkler systems have an

procedure on how they could be applied in design. The covered methods are both

qualitative and quantitative (deterministic as well as probabilistic). In order to get full

benefit of a sprinkler system installation, sprinkler performance data is presented together

with a new set of tenability criteria in sprinklered buildings and sprinklered design fires.

Finally, advice is given on specific design situations where fire sprinklers could allow for

design alternatives. (Less)
