Survey results for fire loads and live loads in office buildings by Charles G Culver( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fire load and live load data obtained from a survey of 23 office buildings located in various regions throughout the United States are presented. The survey design is described including the characteristics of the building population used to select the sample. Data are presented on the magnitude and distribution of the loads. Information is also included on the characteristics of office loads such as the type of items (furniture. equipment, etc.) and their properties (material type, dimensions, exposure, etc.). Statistical summaries of the data and a determination of the building and occupancy characteristics affecting these loads are presented. The data do not indicate any significant differences between the loads in private and government buildings. Similarly, geographic location, building height, and building age were not found to have a significant influence on load magnitude. The use of the rooms surveyed, however, did affect load magnitude. A mathematical model developed from a regression analysis of the survey data is presented for calculating fire loads and live loads in offices. The data presented may be used to evaluate current requirements for design loads for buildings

The subject of visual and auditory warning devices (lights and sirens) for emergency and service vehicles is surveyed from a broad perspective. The report should provide directly useful information at all levels from the selection of hardware to a general understanding of the psychophysical factors determining the effectiveness of these devices. Topics covered include: an analysis of warning signals; the present situation and the need for uniform national standards; suggested performance standards for warning light systems and for sirens, including the reasons for the principal requirements; recommendations for actions that can be taken to improve the signal effectiveness of emergency vehicles; and brief summaries of some of the physical measurements that are made on a selection of lights and sirens
