Abstract
Is it possible to quantify the risks associated with building design compliant with Deemed-to-Satisfy provisions? Prescriptive regulations can be said to provide an acceptable level of safety. Developments in the field of fire safety engineering have provided probabilistic methods for safety verification. It was theorized that by applying such methods to Deemed-to-Satisfy compliant case study buildings, an estimate of the risks associated with Deemed-to-Satisfy provisions could be derived. An event tree based QRA method together with a developed fire risk analysis framework was used to quantify the risks to individuals within apartments. The study was limited to Australian and Swedish building codes.
