Case Studies on the Verification of Fire Safety Design in Sprinklered Buildings : fallstudier avseende verifiering av brandskydd i byggnader med sprinklersystem

Nystedt, Fredrik LU (2012) In Internal report 7035.
Abstract
This report contains several case studies where trade-offs have been made between prescriptive code requirements and the installation of fire sprinklers. The case studies cover design situations as use of combustible wall and façade materials, extended travel distance to exits, reduced requirements on fire ratings as well as the combination of trade-offs. The report uses verifications methods presented in previous research initiatives and evaluates their applicability to common fire safety design situations.
