Overview Aims & Tasks of Department 4

The GFPA Department 4 Performance based Fire Protection Engineering aims at conditioning methods of performance based fire protection engineering which have been developed within the last 10 to 15 years and to place them at disposal with this guideline. This guideline compiles and describes performance based verifications, important for practise, and adequate application is explained by means of typical examples. This guideline should make a contribution to harmonize not yet standardized procedures and assumptions with respect to the application of performance based engineering proofs from fire protection concepts and to avoid misapplication as e.g. by leaving validated paths or using wrong input data.
