    Abstract

    The growing interest in fire risk analysis in the past decade has not eliminated a substantial degree of confusion and disagreement over the meaning of key terms like fire risk and fire hazard and over the bases for choosing an analytical approach that is right for each problem. This paper describes the essential elements of fire risk analysis models, some common misconceptions about fire risk analysis, and some key principles in deciding when and how to use it.

    Keywords:
