Abstract
There are several accident investigation methods and they are used in a wide range of fields. However, the methods have not been used so much in the fire accident area. In the present thesis, the methods’ capability to investigate fires and what they result in are explored. In addition, answers are given concerning how important the background information is for their applicability. First, a selection to reduce the number of methods was made. The studied methods are Accident Evolution and Barrier function method (AEB), deviation investigation, Events and Causal Factors Charting and Analysis (ECFCA), fault tree analysis and event tree analysis. They are applied on three arson fires occurred in Swedish schools. The thesis presents some... (More)
