Managing Risks in Existing Buildings - An Overview of UK Risk-based Legislation for Commercial and Industrial Premises (FB 86)... Managing Risks in Existing Buildings - An Overview of UK Risk-based Legislation for Commercial and Industrial Premises (FB 86) (Paperback)
Steve Manchester
R1,213 Discovery Miles 12 130 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This guide aims to provide a holistic overview of the issues to consider and the techniques and information sources available to improve the management of risks in buildings by the building owner, manager and/or user. This should realise benefits from reduced business losses, reduced insurance premiums, improvements in day-to-day operating costs, improvements in staff welfare (reduced sick absences) and reduced reactive mitigation measures after an incident. This report applies to all types of existing non-domestic buildings and premises in the UK from offices, warehouses and industrial/processing sites to transport hubs such as airports and railway stations. The guide covers those risks that can have a major impact on the building or site infrastructure and a significant proportion of its occupants. Due to the wide-ranging nature and use of buildings in the UK, there may be some types of risk that are not covered here, although the general principles for risk assessment will still apply.

Ulf Wickstrom
R2,683 Discovery Miles 26 830 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book provides a consistent scientific background to engineering calculation methods applicable to analyses of materials reaction-to-fire, as well as fire resistance of structures. Several new and unique formulas and diagrams which facilitate calculations are presented. It focuses on problems involving high temperature conditions and, in particular, defines boundary conditions in a suitable way for calculations. A large portion of the book is devoted to boundary conditions and measurements of thermal exposure by radiation and convection. The concepts and theories of adiabatic surface temperature and measurements of temperature with plate thermometers are thoroughly explained.Also presented is a renewed method for modeling compartment fires, with the resulting simple and accurate prediction tools for both pre- and post-flashover fires. The final chapters deal with temperature calculations in steel, concrete and timber structures exposed to standard time-temperature fire curves. Useful temperature calculation tools are included, and several examples demonstrate how the finite element code TASEF can be used to calculate temperature in various configurations. Temperature Calculation in Fire Safety Engineering is intended for researchers, students, teachers, and consultants in fire safety engineering. It is also suitable for others interested in analyzing and understanding fire, fire dynamics, and temperature development. Review questions and exercises are provided for instructor use.

Post-Earthquake Fire Analysis in Urban Structures - Risk Management Strategies (Hardcover): Behrouz Behnam Post-Earthquake Fire Analysis in Urban Structures - Risk Management Strategies (Hardcover)
Behrouz Behnam
R3,359 Discovery Miles 33 590 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Post-earthquake fire is one of the most complicated problems resulting from earthquakes and presents a serious risk to urban structures. Most standards and codes ignore the possibility of post-earthquake fire; thus it is not factored in when determining the ability of buildings to withstand load. This book describes the effects of post-earthquake fire on partially damaged buildings located in seismic urban regions. The book quantifies the level of associated post-earthquake fire effects, and discusses methods for mitigating the risk at both the macro scale and micro scale. The macro scale strategies address urban regions while the micro scale strategies address building structures, covering both existing buildings and those that are yet to be designed.

Gavin Jones
R1,308 Discovery Miles 13 080 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Buildings protect what is important to us and given that there will always be threats to building security, there is a need to deploy appropriate and proportionate protective security to protect people and assets from losses. This guide, written for the procurement team, discusses the importance of establishing security objectives at the outset of a new project and the need for close collaboration between project team members and security advisers. It describes: - facility planning and design of a protective security system - how to integrate an effective protective security system into the procurement process for new building projects - key security tasks, information exchanges, and security roles and responsibilities - the need to protect information relating to buildings and their security, especially as the industry adopts BIM for procurement and asset management efficiencies. The importance of testing, evaluating and reviewing security system performance to ensure the system remains fit for purpose through the life of the facility is highlighted.
