Title: "NKB level"?
Post by: wilsonobre on July 16, 2014, 04:35:08 pm
Do you know what is meaning NKB levels in PyroSim? If you have some knowledge about the NKB level, please help us! Thank you
Here is an extract of the text where we find the term: "... It is not a new approach in engineering applications. The concept was first implemented in 1963. The approach was then converted into a five stage framework called NKB level for use in five countries in Northern Europe..."

I am not familiar with that term. Where did the quote you posted come from?

Of the three standards they referenced, BS 6019:1980 was the only one I was able to find more information on and I think it might get you closer to what you want to know:

BS 6019:1980 - Recommendations for performance standards in building. Contents and presentation (British Standard)

Well Thank you, Mr. Thornton! I made a lot of researchs, and I found that, the NKB Levels (Nordic Regulations on Fire Safety in Buildings) is nothing more than a set of regulations on design of buildings / buildings where action will be taken in case of fire, ie, have structures that must be followed to obtain better performance in case of fire.
I'm trying to attach a file but it's too large, send me your e-mail, sure I can send u materials of my research

Best Regards
