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 the 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
