This GAP analysis attempts to identify the steps that are needed to determine which of the numerous methods (and associated variables) result in the most accurate fire flow assessment for modern buildings. The two categories of flow methodologies, building planning and on-scene, have differing application purposes. The focus of the GAP analysis is validating the building planning methods, since regulations for buildings/areas (i.e., what fire flow to require in fire codes and insurance guidelines) is of primary concern.
