Abstract
In order to assess fire vulnerability of old buildings quickly and reasonably, a model for an assessment system of fire vulnerability of old buildings was built, based on the theory of fuzzy comprehensive assessment. Based on the analysis of the building fire spreading process and the mechanical properties of building materials under high temperature index factors of the old buildings fire vulnerability assessment model were determined at different levels and analytic hierarchy process (AHP) was used to determine the weight coefficients of the model at the same level factors. A software for fire vulnerability assessment of old buildings was developed with the help of Visual Basic 6.0 on Windows platform to assess fire vulnerability of old buildings. Using the developed software, the fire vulnerability assessment for an old hotel was carried out. It is shown that assessment results for the fire developments of one, two and three are not vulnerable but four and five are serious vulnerable.
