    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Gives advice on identifying suitable design fire scenarios to be considered in fire safety design. Also advises on specification of design fires for quantitative analysis in fire safety design of buildings, and can be applied to other constructions.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This part of ISO/TR13387 provides guidance on the identification of appropriate design fire scenarios for consideration in fire safety design. It also provides guidance on the specification of design fires for quantitative analysis in fire safety design of buildings. This approach may be applied to other constructions. It is intended for use in conjunction with the methodology outlined in part1 of this Technical Report.

    The document describes a systematic approach to the identification of significant fire scenarios that need to be considered in fire safety design. Once significant fire scenarios have been identified, the document provides guidance on the selection of \'design fire scenarios\' for quantitative analysis.

    The document provides guidance on the specification of \'design fires\' to reflect the design fire scenarios that have been identified for analysis. Design fires are specified in terms of important characteristics that form the input data into the quantitative analysis of various subsystems of the fire safety system as described in part1.
