Fire Risk Analysis and Modelling of the Relevant Scenarios: towards a Performance Based Fire Engineering and Protection Approach
Fire risk analysis has become an invaluable tool for determining the fire safety level of existing facilities, for assuring effective fire protection design (also avoiding costly subsequent redesign) and for effectively integrate fire protection criteria and features into project specifications in case of new-building construction.
