No other resource—not even the building code—presents the exact code information you need, when you need it at design stage The International Building Code (IBC) is a model building code developed by the International Code Council (ICC). The IBC and its complementary codes provide design and construction professionals with a complete set of comprehensive, coordinated building safety and fire prevention regulations in order to safeguard the public health and general welfare of the occupants of new and existing buildings and structures. Adopted throughout most of the United States and its territories, it is referenced by federal agencies, such as the General Services Administration, National Park Service, Department of State, U.S. Forest Service, and the Department of Defense. For architects and other design and construction professionals, it is particularly important that they understand how to apply the IBC and how code officials view buildings, so that they integrate code-required provisions in the earliest design stages of any project. Applying the IBC, as well as its companion codes, to building design is a process that is uniquely different to that of applying the building code during a planning review. Whereas other guide books explain the IBC in sequential order, from cover to cover, chapter by chapter, and section by section, Applying the Building Code explains the requirements of the IBC as they would apply during the common phases of design: from schematic design through to the preparation of construction documents. This effectively highlights applicable requirements of the building code at the appropriate stage of design based on available information. The book provides a 28-step process that is organized according to the three phases of architectural design: schematic design, design development, and construction documents Each step explains the application of the IBC, as well as other codes and standards referenced by the IBC (i.e. International Fire Code, International Energy Conservation Code, and ANSI A117.1) based on available project information Illustrations and examples are provided throughout that explain the code fundamentals associated with each step A single example project is used throughout the step-by-step process to illustrate how each step is applied and builds upon code and project information obtained through previous steps Guidance is also provided on the International Existing Building Code and how the step-by-step process is applied to projects involving existing buildings The role of the building department and its staff in regard to plan reviews and code enforcement is discussed A detailed code data information template is provided that can help organize code-related information for construction documents

Master an Approach Based on Fire Safety Goals, Fire Scenarios, and the Assessment of Design Alternatives Performance-Based Fire Safety Design demonstrates how fire science can be used to solve fire protection problems in the built environment. It also provides an understanding of the performance-based design process, deterministic and risk-based analysis techniques, development of design fire scenarios, trial design development and analysis, and building lifecycle management. Develop a Strategy That Meets the Fire Safety Goals for a Building Topics addressed include designing to protect people from fire, design of detection systems, smoke control systems and structural fire resistance, addressing computational and design uncertainty, and fire testing to support design development or evaluation. Identifies key attributes of performance-based design Reviews the advantages and disadvantages of performance-based design over specification-based prescriptive design Provides a series of steps offering a framework/process for performance-based design Performance-Based Fire Safety Design focuses on the development and application of performance-based fire safety design approaches. Written by leading experts in the field, this text addresses the unique features and uses of a building and helps you gain a better understanding of how a building will perform in the event of a fire.

On a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, the young man goes overboard and is saved by fishermen from Newfoundland. The men don’t believe the story of Harvey’s wealth and treat him like one of their own. Harvey has to work hard and live the life of an ordinary fisher. At first, he is unable to cope with the new challenges, but finally he becomes stronger and learns to judge life from a different perspective. Rudyard Kipling was born in 1865 in Bombay as son of an Anglo-American family. At the age of five, he was taken to England where he was educated. He returned to India as a young man and started working as a journalist and novelist. His most popular fictional works were »The Jungle Book« (1894) and »Kim« (1901). In 1907 Kipling was the youngest and first English author to receive the Nobel Price for literature. He died in London in 1936.
