Fire Load – The basis of any Fire Safety Risk Assessment

The fire load of a facility, industrial entity, process plant or building, is the heat energy that could be released per square meter of the floor area of a compartment, by the complete combustion of the contents of the unit area and any combustible parts of the unit.

It is a way of establishing the potential severity of a hypothetical future fire.

The heat output per unit floor area, often in kJ/m2, calculated from the calorific value of the materials present.

The fire load per unit area is defined as Fire Load Density

Fire load or Fire loading is used for evaluating industrial safety risks.

qc =∑ mvHv / Af

Where qc = fire load (MJ/m2)

Af= Floor area (m2)

mv= Total mass of the combustible material (Kg)and

Hv= Calorific value of the combustible material (MJ /Kg)

In order to characterize fires, fire safety risk analysis, information on fire load is very important.

Fire load survey or Calculation of Fire Load is the direct way to collect associated information which can provide a basis for the design fire.

Fire load calculation is considered as the quantitative base for fire safety risk assessment.

A fire safety risk assessment is a process involving the systematic evaluation of the factors that determine the hazard from fire, the likelihood that there will be a fire and the consequences if one were to occur.

Both qualitative and quantitative methods of risk assessment are available and used based on the suitability.
