Bostadsbränder och sprinkler. En koppling till brandteknisk dimensionering

Nystedt, Fredrik LU (2001) In LUTVDG/TVBB--3108--SE 3108.
Abstract
The aim of this study was to develop a model for the quantification of the occupant risk in residential fires. The model should make it possible to quantitatively evaluate which effect the presence of a residential sprinkler has on the fire development. Statistics on causes and outcomes of residential fires were used as background material for the model development. A literature review was carried out to find out which effect different fire safety measures has on the building fire safety. The model consists of a number of hand-calculation expressions on fire dynamics, which are linked in a spreadsheet. The model consists of sub models on fire

development, effect of sprinkler, detector activation, smoke production, and human... (More)

development, effect of sprinkler, detector activation, smoke production, and human response. The statistical distributions are given for all input variables as well as for model uncertainty. The outcome is a probabilistic measure of the time to incapacitation and/or death occurs. (Less)
