Translation Of Research Into Practice: Building Design

Law, M., 1986. Translation Of Research Into Practice: Building Design. Fire Safety Science 1: 603-609. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.1-603


Progress towards 'fire engineering by design' will be slow unless researchers can demonstrate to the public authorities and the engineering community that the objectives of fire precautions can be achieved more effectively than at present. Research can give methods of quantifying and defining the requirements for public safety. It is then possible for the building designer to adopt the fire protection measures appropriate to the use of the building and its importance in terms of people and property. Practical examples of applying fire engineering design methods are given.
