Nakamura, H., 1986. Investment Model Of Fire Protection Equipment For Office Building. Fire Safety Science 1: 1019-1028. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.1-1019
This report presents (1) a canonical correlation analysis that describes the relations between characteristics of a building and cost indices of fire protection equipment, and (2) how to apply the analysis for a standard and a trade-off for investment model of fire protection equipment when designers would decide to invest in fire protection equipment. The results of the analysis show that the variate pairs between characteristics of a building and cost indices of fire protection equipment are highly related, and also are available for a standard and a trade-off for investment model of fire protection equipment. Based on the canonical loadings, designers evaluate the installation of sprinkler systems against widths within the buildings, and decide to emphasize the installation of dry risers or sprinkler systems by comparison between the width and service cost index of the buildings.
