Published: November 01, 1997
Abstract: Fire Data Management System, FDMS, is a design for a computer database to store and retrieve fire test results obtained from bench-scale and real-scale tests as well as fire simulation programs. By storing available fire test values in a common format, this data is readily available and easily exchanged. This guide provides detailed descriptions of the physical data structures for the next generation of the database, FDMS 2.0.
