How far is far enough? Separation distance research helps answer that question.

Today at 11:00 am in room 404d (Session W19) researchers will review the completed project on developing guidance for determining safe separation distances.  Separation distances within fire and building codes often are historical and not necessarily based on any specific research or experimentation.  Full scale testing conducted as part of this Fire Protection Research Foundation code fund project provides valuable data to better inform these decisions going forward.  The completed FPRF report can be downloaded from the NFPA web page using the following link http://www.nfpa.org/research/fire-protection-research-foundation/reports-and-proceedings/hazardous-materials/other-hazards/separation-distances-in-nfpa-codes-and-standards


I hope to see you there.
