Fire scenarios are often quantitatively described and analysed in a performance-based fire safety design. However, since the number of possible fire scenarios are more or less infinite, a quantitative analyse must be limited to representative fire scenarios, i.e., design fire scenarios.
Design fires are very important in fire safety engineering and the division works continuously in different projects with design fires. In the publications presented to the right are some of the work that have been conducted at the division presented. The work provides guidance for selecting design fires and can be used by fire protection engineers doing analyses that involves design fires.
