Download Book Title : Landscape and Building Design for Bushfire Areas

(Format : pdf , Language : English)
The devastation wreaked by bushfires on Australian homes and landscapes is an all too familiar scenario. Yet, why do we often see one house burn, whilst an apparently similar house on an adjacent block can endure? Research has shown that many factors affect the chances of a building surviving a bushfire. If you are designing landscapes and buildings in bushfire areas you need to be aware of these factors so that the chances of losses to life and property can be minimised.
Landscape & Building Design for Bushfire Areas integrates the latest scientific knowledge about buildings and bushfires with a flexible design approach.
The book contains two main sections:
1) Provides a clear description of what happens in a bushfire. It describes the environment in which bushfires occur, how a fire attacks, and how buildings are ignited and destroyed.
2) Sets out a practical design approach to the design of buildings and their immediate surroundings. It presents a range of options for designing the various elements of both landscapes and buildings in bushfire-prone areas.
This book encourages design for bushfire to be included as a normal part of designing in bushfire-prone areas, rather than as an undesirable add-on. It will assist planning and building regulatory authorities to improve and administer regulatory requirements and guidelines.
About the Author
Caird Ramsay has three decades of experience in fire research, consulting and teaching both in Australia and overseas. In 1983 he led a CSIRO team which surveyed the fate of houses in the ‘Ash Wednesday’ fires in Victoria and which laid the basis for modern knowledge on the survival of houses in bushfires. He was the founding Chairman of the Standards Australia Committee writing construction standards for bushfire areas, and led the committee through the writing of two editions of the Standard.Lisle Rudolph practised as an architect for ten years before becoming a full-time lecturer in Architectural Design at the University of Melbourne. A master’s degree in Landscape Architecture included a final thesis on ‘Bushfire Hazard Reduction by Passive Methods’. The ‘Ash Wednesday’ fires prompted further interest in this field and led to joint work with Caird Ramsay at CSIRO, culminating in the award-winning video ‘Buildings and Bushfires – Improving the Chances of Survival’.
