Attended the Case study in 13th International Performance-based Codes and Fire Safety Design Method Conference

4 members of the WG for case study attended the 13th International Performance-based Codes and Fire Safety Design Method Conference held 11th -13th of March in Auckland New Zealand, and made a presentation of our case study.

They could narrowly attend the Conference in the situation of spreading the contagion of Coronavirus. The specified building this year is the hotel with conference and gallery in suburban area, and at the center of this building there is a void space from the ground floor to the top.

Besides japan team, Canada, Finland, Hongkong, Poland, and New Zeeland had applied the case study.

The most important point of our proposal is realizing the openness of the void space that the designer of this building intends to, with small safety margin.

The detail of this case study will be shown in the seminar after the annual meeting of next year.
