Designing an underground car park fire scenarios on a probabilistic basis

There are two means of designing fire safety measures. The more conservative method is to use prescriptive-based codes, where the prerequisites of design are written in codes. The other method is performance-based design, in which designers and others involved develop a milestone and design requirements. An important part of fire safety engineering is the simulation of fire and its consequences, which makes it possible to examine the sufficiency of the design. Simulations are based on realistic fire scenarios, which are of particular importance in the case of underground parking facilities. It is necessary to select realistic and reliable inputs in order to design realistic scenarios.
