The performance based approach to fire safety design relies on the use of fire engineering principles calculations and or appropriate software modelling tools to satisfy the intentions of the code of practice for fire precautions in buildings 2013 fire code. Master an approach based on fire safety goals fire scenarios and the assessment of design alternatives performance based fire safety design demonstrates how fire science can be used to solve fire protection problems in the built environment it also provides an understanding of the performance based design process deterministic and risk . A performance based design starts with an analysis of fire scenarios to determine which design alternatives will meet those fire safety goals performance based provisions can be found in a variety of codes and standards including international fire code ifc national fire protection association nfpa 1 uniform fire code nfpa 101 life . Performance based design is typically implemented in one of two methods 1 as a means to determine equivalency to a prescriptive code or standard or 2 as an approach to achieve broadly defined fire safety goals and objectives at present performance based design is typically practiced in the former method. Performance based fire safety design focuses on the development and application of performance based fire safety design approaches written by leading experts in the field this text addresses the unique features and uses of a building and helps you gain a better understanding of how a building will perform in the event of a fire
