Recently, in Korea, construction of high-rise buildings has been rapidly increasing. Therefore, in order to minimize the loss of life and property in the event of a fire, "performance-based design" which requires performance equal to or better than current regulations is obligatorily required. However, in the field of fire and evacuation simulation, which occupies a large part in the performance-based design, detailed technical guidelines have not yet been established. Therefore, various

Especially, in the case of the fire simulation, according to the judgment of a designer the scenario type is selected and the input values is set. Even if the building is used for the same purpose, it is true that the result can be different depending on how and who designed it. Therefore, in this paper, we have investigated the fire scenarios type and scenarios input values by randomly examining 7 preliminary reports of performance-based design in B metropolitan city. We also propose the improvement strategy for fire simulation and lay the groundwork for establishment of technical guidelines for fire simulation for performance-based design.
