Title The FRAME method for evaluating fire risk
Original title El método FRAME de evaluación del riesgo de incendio [in Spanish]
Bibliographic information Jan.-Mar. 2002, No.159, p.52-66. Illus. 13 ref.
Abstract This article presents the FRAME (Fire risk assessment method for engineering) method for evaluating the risk of fire in buildings as a function of three parameters: the value (building envelope and contents), the occupants and the activities carried out within the building. The calculations take into account the potential hazard, the admissible risk and the level or protection, together with a number of additional factors such as thermal load, propagation, geometry, floors, ventilation, access, activation, evacuation time, contents, reserves in water and fire resistance.
