Fire safety issues in the design and construction of high-rise buildings
Corresponding author: firstname.lastname@example.org
The construction of high-rise buildings has revealed new problems related to fire safety. The peculiarity of the architecture, which is covered in high-rise, in fires creates a danger for a large number of people there, reduces the possibility of their evacuation and rescue. The multifunctionality of such buildings, taking into account the originality of the external and internal views, leads to the difficulty of choosing a constructive system, a large number of utilities and technical systems. To address the issues related to safe operation, stay and evacuation of people is the development of a fire protection system for high-rise buildings, based on the development of:
• measures to ensure the durability of buildings or parts thereof againstprogressive collapse due to * ensuring the fire resistance of structures and buildings;
• measures to limit the spread of fire in high-rise buildings through theinstallation of fire barriers inside the building and the device of fire breaks between buildings;
• measures for ensuring timely and unimpeded evacuation of people andtheir rescue at emergency in high-rise buildings;
• systems of active protection of buildings from fire, namely: fire alarm andfire fighting, strong points of fire extinguishing.
