    Stay at the forefront of fire and life safety with the 2nd edition of the SFPE Engineering Guide to Performance-Based Fire Protection.

    NFPA and the SFPE, the industry's leading authorities, have teamed up to create the 2nd edition of the respected SFPE Engineering Guide to Performance-Based Fire Protection. Developed in recognition of the increased acceptance of performance-based design, and including recent experience and advancements in computer modeling and engineering techniques, this edition is a vital tool for engineers, architects, building code officials, and AHJs.

    Both a starting point and a comprehensive reference, the Guide provides a flexible process for performance-based design and the assessment of building fire safety, within both prescriptive and performance-based code systems. Use it to help you:

    • Determine and document the achievement of fire safety goals for a particular project over the life of a building.
    • Identify and work within the latest accepted parameters that should be considered in performance-based analysis or design.
    • Develop fire protection measures that ensure acceptable levels of safety, without unnecessary constraints on other aspects of building design or operation.

    The SFPE Engineering Guide includes detailed coverage on:

    • Defining project scope
    • Identifying goals
    • Defining stakeholder and design objectives
    • Developing performance criteria
    • Developing design fire scenarios
    • Developing and evaluating trial designs
