||This article describes an engineering approach based on a series of models and computer software enabling the implementation of fire hazard safety measures in a building, taking into account the activities that take place within it. Contents include: physical modelling of fire; application of fire simulation tools to safety; quantification of thermal and chemical hazards of fire; example of the calculation of thermal radiation near large open flames.
