5.6.3.1 Data
Input data for computer fire models shall be obtained in accordance with ASTM E1591, Standard Guide for Obtaining Data for Deterministic Fire Models. Data for use in analytical models that are not computer-based fire models shall be obtained using appropriate measurement, recording, and storage techniques to ensure the applicability of the data to the analytical method being used.
5.6.3.2 Data Requirements
A complete listing of input data requirements for all models, engineering methods, and other calculation or verification methods required or proposed as part of the performance-based design shall be provided.
5.6.3.3* Uncertainty and Conservatism of Data
Uncertainty in input data shall be analyzed and, as determined appropriate by the authority having jurisdiction, addressed through the use of conservative values.
