||EXPOSURE: an expert system fire code
||May 1991, Vol.27, No.2, p.145-159. Illus. 15 ref.
||This paper describes a computer program, EXPOSURE, developed to address the problem of preventing the spread of fire between buildings. EXPOSURE is an expert system version of NFPA 80A (Recommended practice for protection of buildings from exterior fire exposures), but expands the class of users to include non-fire safety professionals. The results of applying NFPA 80A and EXPOSURE to the same buildings are compared, and the implications of this work for the development of automated fire codes are discussed. Results indicate that significant cost savings and improved safety can be realised by using expert system fire codes such as EXPOSURE.
