Modeling Of Barrier Failure And Fire Spread In Curisk

CUrisk, a computer  fire  risk  analysis  model, has  been  under development at Carleton University for over a decade. To better evaluate failure of building elements and spread of fire  beyond the  room  of  fire  origin, this thesis  developed  and integrated into CUrisk  a barrier failure model and a fire spread model. A probabilistic fire spread model developed at Carleton University was incorporated into  CUrisk system model.  The role and position of the Fire Spread submodel were analyzed and changes to the system model and some other submodels were undertaken. With these  modifications,  CUrisk  can employ the  Fire  Spread  submodel  to  predict  the  fire  hazard conditions in a building fire, and to use the results to predict the…
