Abstract:

Based on extensive access to over 50 operating underground facilities UGFs where fire protection and life safety capabilities were examined as a part of comprehensive survivability assessments, we conclude that existing fire protection codes used in all examined countrys UGFs are generally inadequate to serve a large class of special purpose underground structures. Recommended practices to mitigate those inadequacies are discussed in the context of UGF operational constraints and threat effects to include Recommended fire protection design practices Recommended life safety design practices.
