AbstractRevised regulations governing the fire separation of buildings were proposed for inclusion in the 1960 edition of the National Building Code. The Committee which was assigned the responsibility for preparation of the new Part 9 - Housing, directed that a study should be undertaken to determine what effect the proposed regulations would have on typical housing subdivisions. The National Research Council, Division of Building Research with the cooperation of Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation carried out such a study of a selected number of existing subdivisions for which complete plans were available, and the results are now reported.
