On the use of fire brigade statistics for structural fire safety engineering

Gianluca De Sanctis, Jochen Köhler, Mario Fontana


In this paper the fire brigade intervention is considered for the assessment of structural fire safety through the concept of a maximal controllable fire area. Based on a literature survey probabilistic models are developed to consider the uncertainties associated with the fire development and the fire brigade intervention. A sensitivity analysis identifies the most important parameters and suggestions for future data collection are made to improve the probabilistic models.
