When Can DtS Solutions Make Unsafe Buildings?

Presented by Dr. Jonathan R. Barnett FSFPE, FIEAust, CPEng, PE, Technical Director, RED Fire Engineers

Performance based building codes often have a prescriptive option known as Deemed-to-Satisfy (DtS) where the performance objectives are assumed to be complied with if the DtS requirements are met. But, as is the case with Australia, the DtS requirements are usually based on historic or traditional codes and there may be no assurance that compliant DtS solutions will meet the Performance requirements. Can a DtS design result in an unsafe building? This talk will address the history of the DtS concept, its strengths and weaknesses and the need for true Performance Design.
