This Report was Original Order as PB90-269549 Cancelled
as of 2/92. FPETOOL is a computerized package of
relatively simple engineering equations and models. A
package of engineering tools useful in estimating
potential fire hazard and the response of the space and
fire protection systems to the developing hazard is
presented. The computations use established engineering
relationships. This paper outlines those relationships
for the benefit of engineers and others interested in
using the tools in the package. A separate report,
FPETOOL User's Guide (NISTIR 4439), also is available.
