                                                  - fire safety guideline for V4


Performance-Based Fire Engineering of Structures in V4 countries
5th – 6th November, 2019
CTU in Prague, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Czech Republic

The aim of this conference is to spread information about the solving problem, to find all gaps in the field and to decide what is in need of improving. The transfer into practice will be achieved by international workshop and a defined design guide document that will include a general introduction about fire engineering and presentation of the design examples. The design guide will be useful for easily understandable of fire safety design procedures by structural engineers and planners.

The aim of the project is to create a platform promoting the use of progressive fire safety design incorporating risk-informed performance-based approach in V4 countries. Progressive fire safety design methods are a necessary prerequisite for addressing the current challenges of the built environment, such as increased use of materials from renewable sources, energy efficiency standards as well as use of the building by mobility- and otherwise impaired occupants. The platform will establish a network of experts in fire safety engineering from the relevant stakeholder groups, including academics, practitioners and government-body representatives.

Following the analysis of the current implementation of progressive fire safety design methods in the V4 countries and lessons learned from other countries a V4 guidance document on the progressive fire safety design methods will be created. This document will present a basis for the correct and efficient implementation of fire safety engineering principles in the V4 countries. Also it is anticipated that the stakeholder representatives from the involved countries will meet at a workshop on the current state and future outlook of progressive fire safety design methods.
