This report describes the first version of a method for
predicting the hazards to occupants involved in a
building fire. To implement the method, a personal
computer software package called HAZARD I is provided.
The software consists of modules which can predict the
time varying environment within a building resulting
from a specified fire; the locations and actions of a
specified group of occupants as they interact with the
building, the fire, and each other; and the impact of
the exposure of each of the occupants to the fire
products in terms of whether the occupants successfully
escape, are incapacitated, or are killed. The
documentation includes the Software User's Guide, and a
Reference Guide consisting of the Technical Reference
Guide and Example Cases. NIST Handbook 146 is a set
consisting of three volumes described above plus
computer softwware supplied on seven (7) 5 1/4" and four
(4) 3 1/2" disks.
