Fire Protection Analysis Of The Orfalea College Of Business Building (#3), William Fletcher Mar 2012

Fire Protection Analysis Of The Orfalea College Of Business Building (#3), William Fletcher

Culminating Experience Project Reports in Fire Protection Engineering

A performance and prescriptive based analysis was performed on the Orfalea College of Business Building (#3) on Cal Poly’s Campus. The building was originally designed to meet the 1985 Uniform Building Code (UBC). The building’s original design and current existing condition will be examined. The business building will be evaluated using the California Building Code, California Fire Code, NFPA 101 Life Safety code and other relevant NFPA Codes. The fire protection systems will be separated and evaluated into systems by Egress Components, Fire Alarm and Detection, Water- Based Suppression and Structural Fire Protection. The combined interactions of the ...


Fire And Life Safety Analysis Of The Performing Arts Center's Christopher Cohan Center, David Phillips Mar 2012

Fire And Life Safety Analysis Of The Performing Arts Center's Christopher Cohan Center, David Phillips

Culminating Experience Project Reports in Fire Protection Engineering

This report is a review of the fire protection systems installed in the Christopher Cohan Center on the Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo campus. The systems reviewed are the passive structural fire protection, passive and active egress components, and active detection and suppression systems. The report examines whether the reviewed systems in the building meet the prescriptive requirements of the 2010 California Building Code(CBC) and California Fire Code(CFC). The building will be further subjected to a performance based analysis. Two design fire scenarios are presented, and an analysis of available safe egress time (ASET) is compared with an ...

Bulding 192, Engineering Iv, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Mark Ferraresi

Culminating Experience Project Reports in Fire Protection Engineering

This report presents a fire and life safety analysis of Engineering IV. This analysis includes a review of prescriptive code requirements per the International Building Code, 2009 Edition and other applicable codes and standards; a description of the current fire and life safety systems or features in place; a prescriptive.based analysis; and a performance.based analysis. Beyond typical fire protection systems, such as means of egress systems and structural fire protection, Engineering IV was found to an automatic fire alarm and notification system, an automatic sprinkler system, and smoke control features. The systems and features surveyed were found to ...
