Abstract:

ABSTRACT ONLY This paper addresses the development of FireCAD, a tool for performing Fire Hazard Analysis using the capabilities of the computer aided design tool, AUTOCAD, and the zone fire model, CFAST. FireCAD uses an AUTOCAD drawing as a basis for generating input files to be modeled by CFAST.
