|Title:||USE OF COMBUSTION EFFLUENT DATA IN TENABILITY ASSESSMENT|
|Published:||November 11, 2008|
|Abstract:||Typical prescriptive and performance-based assessments of life safety in building fires do not explicitly consider the contributions of the toxic potency of combustion gases, smoke obscuration, or the thermal and radiative environment. This paper characterizes rigorous and simplified approaches to fire hazard assessment that include the effects on life safety of airborne toxicants, visible smoke, and heat and explores the implications of such methodologies for characterizing the fire performance of construction and furnishing products|
