Abstract:

The Building and Fire Research Laboratory at NIST held the third in a series of workshops on the topic of fire detection in December 1997 in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The previous workshop, held in February of 1995, had a number of objectives: to identify the needs of users and specifiers of fire detection systems which were not being met; to highlight future needs which could result from new developments in the construction, transportation, and manufacturing sectors, or from regulatory changes; to identify generic technological barriers which were limiting the fire protection industry from fully meeting the users' needs; and to develop a research agenda and recommend priorities to enable U.S. industry to overcome these technological barriers.
