The Industry Foundation Class (or IFC) Model is a standardised, object-oriented “building product model” that provides an electronic description of buildings. Entities are defined in the model to represent building elements with their associated properties. This paper reviews the latest release of the IFC Model considering entities and properties related to fire engineering. The paper goes on to examine how these entities and properties can be mapped to the input requirements of the BRANZFIRE fire simulation software

Properties for fire engineering design in New Zealand and the IFC building product model Spearpoint, M.J. (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering., 2003)This paper examines the information needs of Fire Engineers and relates those needs to the IFC Building Product Model. It identifies what is already provided in the IFC 2x Model and how in particular it corresponds with ...
Integrating the IFC building product model with fire zone models Spearpoint, M.J. (University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering., 2003)Buildings that provide sporting, entertainment, and leisure facilities (e.g. sports arenas, exhibition halls, etc) can often contain large enclosed spaces or voids. In the event of a fire, these buildings often require the ...
Integration of building product models with fire simulation software Spearpoint, Michael John (University of Canterbury. Fire Engineering, 2005)There is considerable interest within the construction industry to develop models that are able describe the whole life-cycle of a building in an electronic form. Such models would allow for the sharing of building information ...
