  3. 3. Consequences of using Quantitative Risk Assessment as a verification tool

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Joey Öström; [2022]
    Keywords : Quantitative Risk Assessment; QRA; performance-based design; verification tool; performance solution; performance requirements; fire risk assessment; residential building; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : What are the consequences of using Quantitative risk assessment (QRA) as a verification tool? Performance-based building codes differ from prescriptive-based codes in that they define specific objectives to be met, enabling the building designer to choose which solution to use so long it meets the objectives. This master’s thesis explores the consequences of using QRA as a verification tool in comparison to existing verification methods currently in use in Australia. READ MORE
