||Fire risk analysis: general conceptual framework for describing models
||Feb. 1991, Vol.27, No.1, p.33-53. 11 ref.
||A general conceptual framework has been developed as an aid to discussions of alternative approaches to fire risk analysis. The purpose is to show how each alternative seeks to address a few common concerns. Basic concepts and key elements - notably scenario structures, appropriate probability functions, and severity and outcome measures - are defined and discussed, as are types of modelling approaches. A number of diverse examples are then presented using the framework to illustrate its value in making comparisons.
