AbstractThe National Research Council's Institute for Research in Construction (IRC) has developed a new fire protection model that promises to play an important role in the design of fire protection systems in light industrial buildings. The model, called FIERAsystem, was developed by researchers in IRC's Fire RiskManagement Program in collaboration with partners such as the Department of National Defence. The impetus came from the evolution occurring in Canada and other countries from prescriptive-based building codes to performance- or objective-based codes. This new type of code created the need for new design tools that can demonstrate compliance.
