Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 15 August 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 52
ICS Code (Protection against fire in general): 13.220.01
scope:

This International Standard establishes a framework for the verification and validation of all types of calculation methods used as tools for fire safety engineering by specifying specific procedures and requirements for the purpose. It does not address specific fire models, but it is applicable to analytical models, algebraic correlations and complex numerical models, which are addressed as calculation methods in the context of this International Standard.

This International Standard includes

- a process to determine that the relevant equations and calculation methods are implemented correctly (verification) and that the calculation method being considered is an accurate representation of the real world (validation),

- requirements for documentation to demonstrate the adequacy of the scientific and technical basis of a calculation method,

- requirements for data against which a calculation method's predicted results are checked, and

- guidance on use of this International Standard by developers and/or users of calculation methods, and by those assessing the results obtained by using calculation methods.
