Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for March 21-27, emergency egress and illumination, selective coordination best practices, trends in fire, life safety, designing generator systems, and class A office building. Link to each article below.

1. Emergency egress and illumination systems

Understanding the basic characteristics of emergency egress and illumination systems provides engineers with the knowledge to optimize lifecycle and emergency evacuation performance.

2. Following selective coordination best practices

Design engineers must coordinate electrical systems so that the protective device closest to the fault opens first, and quickly enough, to prevent the upstream devices from tripping.

3. Seven trends in fire, life safety

Respondents to the Consulting-Specifying Engineer 2016 Fire and Life Safety Study identified seven high-level findings.

4. Designing generator systems

When designing generator systems, such as engine-driven generator sets, design engineers must ensure that the generator selection, sizing, and the design of electrical systems are appropriate for the application.

5. Class A office building system design

Class A office buildings are among the toughest projects an engineer can work on-complex structures, demanding clients, and advanced technology.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, March 21-27, for articles published within the last two months.
