This report represents the work of 75 persons assembled by the Building Research Board of the National Research Council to address the state of the art of analytical methods for fire safety in buildings. The group, widely representative of the research, design, regulatory and manufacturing sectors of the U.S. building community, was asked to evaluate three types of analytical methods for potential use in the design of buildings: (1) numeric methods that are on a point system intended to grade a building for fire safety and that are simple to use and provide explicit results, (2) deterministic methods that predict results based on known physical variables, and (3) probabilistic methods related to the potential for experiencing a fire hazard given the nature of the fire load. The workshop consensus showed that analytical methods are available, applicable, and used by the fire design community
