Roitman, V.M., 1994. Consideration Of Real Fire Conditions While Calculating The Critical Fire Load Density In Compartments On The Basis Of The Kinetic Approach. Fire Safety Science 4: 1067-1075. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.4-1067
This paper presents the theoretical background and an engineering calculation method for the determination of the maximum (critical) value of the fire load density for which a failure does not occur for the load bearing structures in a defined fire compartment when exposed to a simulated natural fire. The critical fire load density is suggested to be defined for real fire exposure on the structure on the basis of a kinetic approach. The use of the kinetic approach to solve this problem as well makes it possible to consider more precisely the real fire behavior of the structure than when calculating on the basis of a static approach.
