  1. 1. Decision Analysis in Fire Safety Engineering - Analysing Investments in Fire Safety

    University dissertation from Department of Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety, Lund University

    Author : Henrik Tehler; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Safety technology; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; investment appraisal; epistemic uncertainties; fire safety; Decision analysis; risk analysis; Säkerhetsteknik;

    Abstract : The application of decision analytical methods to the evaluation of investments in fire safety was investigated, particularly with the aim of being able to suggest a method for analysing a specific investment in fire safety for a specific factory. Attention was directed above all at the handling of cases of large epistemic uncertainty regarding both probabilities and utilities, Bayesian decision theory serving as a basis for the development of the method.

  2. 2. The Development of a European Fire Classification System for Building Products - Test Methods and Mathematical Modelling

    University dissertation from Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety

    Author : Björn Sundström; SP Fire Research.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik; Teknik; Technological sciences; Brandteknik; Fire Protection Engineering; Conflame; Cone Tools; FDS; CFD; Duhamel?s integral; Fire Growth Rate; FIGRA; Euroclass; SBI; Single Burning Item; Cone Calorimeter; Room Corner Test; fire modelling; Reaction to fire; flashover;

    Abstract : The fire technical properties of products are determining factors for the initiation and growth of fires. Measurement of fire technical properties and the understanding of how they relate to real hazards are therefore important for fire safety. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fire safety evaluation of multifunctional buildings - Special emphasis on antagonistic attacks and protection of sensitive areas

    University dissertation from Lund University. Faculty of Engineering

    Author : Martin Nilsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; multifunctional building; multipurpose building; antagonism; terrorism; design fire; fire scenario; sensitive areas; electrical appliances room; fire protection; hypoxic air venting; reduced oxygen; fire growth; building code; fire safety engineering;

    Abstract : Multifunctional buildings, often hosting societal important functions, have become increasingly more common during the last years. The combination of many functions within the same building as well as an increased exposure to antagonistic attacks create new, not previously well analyzed problems for fire safety. READ MORE

  4. 4. An Engineering Approach to Fire Fighting Tactics

    University dissertation from Brandteknik

    Author : Stefan Särdqvist; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; risk management; decision making; fire brigade; fire-fighting tactics; pre-fire planning; fire safety engineering;

    Abstract : This report presents a quantified model as a guide for the Incident Commander to determine the most suitable fire-fighting tactics in advance for given conditions at specific objects. The model is applied to two chemical warehouses. READ MORE

  5. 5. Demand for Extinguishing Media in Manual Fire Fighting

    University dissertation from Department of Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety, Lund University

    Author : Stefan Särdqvist; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fire fighting; Fire brigade; fire suppression; extinguishing agents; extinction; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Riskanalys och insatsplanering är viktiga delar av ett riskhanteringsarbete. Denna studie har visat att det är möjligt att använda brandtekniska ingenjörsmodeller för att bedöma utvecklingen av bränder och det uppkomna behovet av släckmedel. READ MORE
