AbstractA method is given by which the loss expectation for buildings, both the life loss expectation and the property loss expectation, can be determined. The use of the loss expectation as a criterion that can quantitatively express the degree of fire safety that is provided in a building is discussed. It is shown how, in principle, fire protection measures can be optimized and how various parameters affect the optimum measures. This study is an extension of previous work.
