Recognition of Fire Cues During Sleep.

Bruck, Dorothy and Brennan, Patricia (2001) Recognition of Fire Cues During Sleep. In: Second International Symposium on Human Behaviour in Fire, 2001, London.


Accurate prediction of occupant response is required for models that are designed to assess risk to life in fires for the purpose of performance-based assessment of building safety, but quantitative data on human behaviour in fires is limited. The lack of data, and particularly of data relating to initial occupant response, is recognised worldwide.
