Research on Fire Protection Methods and a Case Study “Futurum”

A common way of handling structural fire protection and design is using the so called standard fire as basis for prescriptive design. For this, a wide experimental research with also a large amount of numerical simulations has been carried out in Finland to gather experience of using automatic water extinguishers as a protective method against fire. This research, test methods and the results are presented in this paper. A more modern way of evaluating building's fire resistance is performance based fire design. This can be carried out in many levels and using different fire models. One way is to use zone models to calculate the temperatures in structures. A case study, now under construction, concerning the use of zone models and OZone software is presented in this paper.
