Abstract

This paper presents development of a classification system for an electrical fire investigation. In order to reduce an electrical fires and establish detailed prevention plans, the collection of an electrical fire causes and base data are very important. Based on this data, a new classification system for an electrical fire investigation was developed and the direction to the classification system was suggested by fundamental analysis. All of the collected information is analyzed by bottom-up method. Criteria items which based on base data were categorized to classify items. The classification of items were found out as follows : basic condition fire scene condition, fire sign, fire cause. Particularly, the fire cause category is classified. A new developed classification system for an electrical fire investigation will be used to analyse electrical fires easily and efficiently.
