BRANZ and the University of Canterbury have worked together to develop a new building design fire tool called B-RISK to simulate building fires. Fire simulation results can be presented in a probabilistic form and will allow the variability and uncertainty associated with the predictions of the fire environment to be quantified. B-RISK is intended to replace the BRANZFIRE program.
This research has been funded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and by BRANZ from the Building Research Levy.
B-RISK allows a number of features to be integrated within the design tool such as:
Download B-RISK software - download the zip file, unzip and run the setup file to install. You may require administrator privileges for the installation. (Version 2018.04 - OS Win64)
Download B-RISK 2016 user guide and technical manual (BRANZ Study Report 364)
