Developed by Subcommittee: E05.33
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This guide provides a methodology for the systematic evaluation of deterministic fire models, which made be used in enclosure fire hazard analyses.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E05 on Fire Standards and Subcommittee E05.33 on Fire Safety Engineering, this guide was withdrawn without replacement in July 2011. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement because it completed its usefulness when it provided SFPE with a starting point for their own engineering guides and standards on these points. This standard does not rely on expertise in ASTM's areas of strength but is more appropriately the subject of SFPE guides and standards, in that SFPE members will be all or nearly all of the users of such guides.
1.1 This guide covers a methodology for the systematic evaluation of fire models, which may be used in fire hazard analyses.
1.2 This guide provides a means of identifying both general and specific limitations of fire models for specific applications.
1.3 This guide is intended to assist model developers, model users, and authorities having jurisdiction in assuming the responsible use of fire models.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
