Description:

Fire risk assessment in buildings is an integral part of the current move towards performance-based building regulations in most countries. However, the subject is relatively new, and not many people know exactly what fire risk assessment is. Principles of Fire Risk Assessment in Buildings will facilitate that understanding, and through its illustration of basic principles and techniques allow the reader to conduct his or her own fire risk assessments. This book also explains the various fire risk assessment methodologies and tools that are either in existence or being proposed by various organisations.
