His many life-long contributions to the profession and practice of fire pro-tection engineering are hereby acknowledged with greatappreciation. His life's work provides a significant basis forthe future work to be continued by his many colleagues.A renowned fire protection engineer and building codeexpert,Richard G. Gewain died on February 13,2003 aftercomplications from heart surgery. This document was oneof the last engineering projects that Dick was working onprior to his death,and it is dedicated to his memory.Since 1986,Dick was a Senior Engineer with the con-sulting firm of Hughes Associates,Inc. in Baltimore,MD.He specialized in developing and reviewing active and pas-sive fire protection systems,as well as performance-basedengineering to predict realistic fire exposures and the fireresistance criteria.
