Fire spread modeling is very important to fire safety engineering and to insurance industries involved in fire risk–cost analysis of buildings. In this paper, the Bayesian network is introduced. The directed acyclic graph of a fire spread model is presented. When the fire ignition location is known, the fire spread model based on the Bayesian network from the compartment of fire origin to another compartment can be built, and the probability of fire spread can be calculated by making use of the joint probability distribution of the Bayesian network. A specific application for an office building is presented for a case without sprinkler and one with sprinkler installed.
Fires in buildings pose a significant risk to building occupants and cause property damage. A lot of research has been conducted over the last decades aiming to understand the mechanism of fire ignition and growth as well as smoke movement to adjacent compartments. This body of research resulted in computer models that predict fire growth and smoke spread through a building, which can be used to design effective strategies to control fire growth and spread in a building to improve life safety and reduce property damage . Mathematical models to simulate fire spread between compartments are particularly important for fire risk assessment of large buildings. There are two kinds of approaches that can be used to simulate fire spread, the deterministic and probabilistic methods. Deterministic models such as WALL2D  and  can be used to predict the time of failure of a wall when subjected to a fire attack. The results of these models can also used in a Monte-Carlo simulation to predict the probability of failure at different times. Ramachanandran  and  summarized the studies of probabilistic approach model done over last decades. In the earlier studies, the epidemic theory  and , random walk theory  and , Markov process ,  and , percolation process  and  and probabilistic network  and  were used to model the fire spread. These models could successfully describe the fire spread process in building in some respects. But there are some disadvantages to simulate fire spread process using these models. The epidemic theory can not explain the fire spread to adjacent combustible materials or compartments, which can not be reached by the burning flame or the fire spread due to radiation. The random walk theory  and  and percolation process  and  can simulate the fire spread from a fire compartment to one of its adjacent compartments, and then from this fire compartment to another adjacent compartment. But they are not good at simulating the scenarios that fire may spread from a fire compartment to multiple adjacent compartments or fire spreads from multiple fire compartments to their adjacent compartments. The transition probability in Markov process ,  and  is not the probability of fire spread from fire compartment to the adjacent compartment. It only presents the probability of fire will spread from fire compartment to a compartment comparing to the other compartments, i.e. there are two similar compartments at the each side of a fire compartment, the transition probability of each compartment will always equal to 50%, no matter how long the fire lasts. In addition, the fire spread process from one compartment to multiple compartment or multiple compartments to adjacent compartments at the same time can not be described by Markov process. Ling and Williamson  first presented a probabilistic network approach to study room-to-room fire spread and a network of fire spread in a building floor was presented. This model did not consider the barrier breach because of radiation and the network is complicated. If the fire initial change, a new network had to be developed. Platt et al.  developed a simple and clear model in which event tree was used to determine the probability of fire spread form fire initial compartment to other compartments. This model is very good to express the fire spread process for small buildings. But it is hard to develop a tree for large buildings. If the initial fire compartment changed, a new tree has to be developed even for same buildings which make this model difficult to be programmed. The digraph (directed graph) approach was used for the fire spread sub-model of the fire risk evaluation and cost assessment model (FiRECAM) . To simplify the problem, all compartments of the same type such as rooms, corridors, stairwells in one floor are combined as a node of the network of buildings. The developed algorithm searches all possible pathways for fire to spread from one node to another. In this paper, the Bayesian network (BN) ,  and  is used to simulate the fire spread process. Bayesian network had been used in the fire risk assessment . Bayesian network can overcome the disadvantages mentioned in previous models. But Bayesian network can not directly describe fire spread process. To build the fire spread model, a general fire spread network has to firstly be built according to the floor plan of a building. Once the fire initial compartment is known, a detail fire spread model using a directed acyclic graph (DAG) of Bayesian network to express the fire spread process from the fire initial compartment to any destination compartment in the floor can be constructed and the probability of fire spread from the initial compartment to the destination compartment can be calculated by marginalizing the joint probability distribution of the Bayesian network.

A fire spread model of a building is a key factor of a fire risk analysis of big buildings used for fire safety designs. The probability of fire spread from the compartment of fire origin to other compartments in the building in conjunction with smoke conditions in the building are required to calculate the expected risk to life and expected losses in a building during a fire. The results of a fire spread model can also be used to determine the fire prevention strategies for buildings. This paper describes a model developed to calculate the fire spread probability from the fire compartment to other compartments using a Bayesian network. To demonstrate the use of the model to calculate fire spread from the compartment of fire origin to a remote compartment in the building two cases were considered: one without a sprinkler system and one with a sprinkler system installed in the building. The results show that sprinklers reduce significantly fire spread in the building. It is important to note, however, that the probabilities of barrier failure and probability of fire growth to fully developed fire used for the case studies are for demonstration only. The relative impact of sprinkler is expected to be dependant on and probability of fire growth to fully developed fire.
