AbstractThis publication contains the proceedings of Building Science Insight '87, a series of one-day seminars on fire safety design of buildings held in ten cities across Canada in the fall of 1987. The specific objective was to explain the "science" behind the National Building code provisions so that attendees, upon returning to the workplace, would be better equipped to play their respective roles in the development of creative and workable design alternatives.
