    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Intended to provide guidance to regulators, designers and fire- safety professionals on the fundamental engineering methods that should be included in design guides and reference manuals to predict: a) the effectiveness of activated automatic suppression systems in limiting the potential consequences of a fire, based on key system characteristics; b) times to detect fire events, based on the design-fire environment and properties and/or location of automatic detection devices; c) times to activate automatic alarm systems and automatic systems designed to control fire growth or to control the effects of fire, based on system design parameters.
