Fire Safety Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Principles of Fire Risk Assessment in Buildings
by David Yung

Principles of Fire Risk Assessment in Buildings introduces the basic principles and techniques that help the reader to understand the various methodologies that are currently in place or being proposed by different organisations.

Principles of Fire Risk Assessment in Buildings demonstrates how the probabilities of fire scenarios are assessed based on the probabilities of success and failure of fire protection measures that are in place.

The book also shows how the consequences of fire scenarios are assessed based on:

  • the intensity and speed of fire and smoke spread
  • the probability and speed of occupant response and evacuation
  • the effectiveness and speed of fire department response and rescue efforts

Principles of Fire Risk Assessment in Buildings's clear and practical approach to this highly topical subject enables the reader to integrate the various tools available into a quantitative framework that can be used for decision making.
