SFPE WEBINAR: FIRE AND LIFE SAFETY DESIGN OF VERY TALL BUILDINGS: CHALLENGES AND STRATEGIES - LIVE ONLINE SEMINAR
FIRE AND LIFE SAFETY DESIGN OF VERY TALL BUILDINGS: CHALLENGES AND STRATEGIES - LIVE ONLINE SEMINAR
Time & Location
Sep 21, 2020, 11:00 AM EDT
About the Event
This seminar is derived from SFPE's one day in-person program and will explore a wide range of fire and life safety challenges associated with very tall buildings and strategies to address them. To enhance learning, attendees will be asked to participate in simple, qualitative hazard, risk or reliability analyses, fire and life safety strategy development for representative building configurations and fire scenarios, and fire safety management and evacuation planning exercises. Due to time constraints there will be no quantitative or computational analyses. The topics and sequence will generally follow those embodied in the SFPE Engineering Guide: Fire Safety for Very Tall Buildings. Content includes an overview of fire events in tall buildings, highlighting issues of concern and lessons learned. Emerging trends in very tall building design, which may have implications for fire and life safety performance, will be discussed.
