fire hazards assessment
The concepts of fire hazard assessment are discussed.
The development of these concepts into the framework for
a hazard assessment model is described. This model,
which is actually a group of interacting models, is
presented in terms of the component functions and the
interactions necessary to accomplish a hazard analysis.
The most critical research issues which must be resolved
in order to use this hazard analysis model for practical
problems are identified. Preliminary results of
experiments to assess the predictive accuracy of the
multi-compartment transport model used within the hazard
model are presented. A simple, engineering approach to
toxicity evaluation included in the current model is
