Fire risk evaluation to european cultural heritage: quantification of priorities and optimisation of fire protection strategies

Objective

Damage by fire is one of the most important threats to cultural heritage. The financial resources available for the fire protection are limited and priorities need to set by authorities and owners of cultural heritage. Actually no scientific tool is available to assist in the decision process. A quantitative decision method will be developed, able to prioritise between series of projects. on the basis of parameters such as value of cultural heritage, fire risk, the protection methods available - their cost and efficiency. As input to this decision method, a valuation method and risk analysis method based on statistical data on fire damage in cultural heritage will be developed. Fire protection methods will be examined on their efficiency, cost and applicability on cultural heritage.
