Release Date: 2014-01-24
Genre: Science

Based on the National Fire Academy s Fire Behavior and Combustion model curriculum. Without a comprehensive grasp of how fires start and spread, informed decisions on how to best control and extinguish fires can not be made. Principles of Fire Behavior and Combustion, Fourth Edition will provide readers with a thorough understanding of the chemical and physical properties of flammable materials and fire, the combustion process, and the latest in suppression and extinguishment. The Fourth Edition of this time-tested resource is the most current and accurate source of fire behavior information available to fire science students and on-the-job fire fighters today."

Principles of Fire Behavior

Genre: Law

This text covers the four forms of fire: diffusion flames, smoldering, spontaneous combustion, and premixed flames. Using a quantitative approach, the text introduces the scientific principles of fire behavior, with coverage of heat transfer, ignition, flame spread, fire plumes, and heat flux as a damage variable. Cases, examples, problems, selected color illustrations and review of mathematics help students in fire safety and investigation understand fire from a scientific point of view.

Genre:

Using a quantitative approach, this book presents an ideal introduction to the scientific principles behind fire behavior. Aimed at non-engineering students, the text covers the four forms of fire: diffusion flames, smoldering, spontaneous combustion, and premixed flames. Individual sections thoroughly discuss such vital issues as heat transfer, ignition, flame spread, fire plumes, heat flux as a damage variable, and more. Formulas help the reader examine fire from a quantitative standpoint. While explaining the science of fire with a precision found nowhere else, the text applies that science to fire safety design and investigation.

Fundamentals of fire phenomena

Publisher: Wiley
ISBN: 0470091134
Release Date: 2006-05-22
Genre: Science

Understanding fire dynamics and combustion is essential in fire safety engineering and in fire science curricula. Engineers and students involved in fire protection, safety and investigation need to know and predict how fire behaves to be able to implement adequate safety measures and hazard analyses. Fire phenomena encompass everything about the scientific principles behind fire behavior. Combining the principles of chemistry, physics, heat and mass transfer, and fluid dynamics necessary to understand the fundamentals of fire phenomena, this book integrates the subject into a clear discipline: Covers thermochemistry including mixtures and chemical reactions; Introduces combustion to the fire protection student; Discusses premixed flames and spontaneous ignition; Presents conservation laws for control volumes, including the effects of fire; Describes the theoretical bases for empirical aspects of the subject of fire; Analyses ignition of liquids and the importance of evaporation including heat and mass transfer; Features the stages of fire in compartments, and the role of scale modeling in fire. Fundamentals of Fire Phenomena is an invaluable reference tool for practising engineers in any aspect of safety or forensic analysis. Fire safety officers, safety practitioners and safety consultants will also find it an excellent resource. In addition, this is a must-have book for senior engineering students and postgraduates studying fire protection and fire aspects of combustion.

Fire Behavior and Fire Protection in Timber Buildings

Author: Roza Aseeva
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789400774605
Release Date: 2013-12-03
Genre: Nature

This volume describes fire behavior and fire protection of timbers in outdoors and indoors application mainly in construction industry. The Authors’ novel approach considers the relationship between various species and age of timbers and its fire behavior at different thermal and fire loads. Quantitative data of ignition speed and flame propagation as well as generation of heat, smoke and toxic products are discussed. Analysis of fire resistance of various types of building materials based on timber of different species as well as the novel data on the effect of natural and accelerated aging of timbers on its fire behavior are discussed. The main practical methods of fire protection of new and ancient timber buildings and structures to increase its fire resistance are considered. The book should be useful for a wide range of readers: chemists, physicists, material scientists, architects, engineers, constructors and restorers.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

Die enormen Zuwachsraten in der Kunststofferzeugung und -anwendung erhöhen die Forderung nach aussagekräftigen Mess- und Auswerteverfahren in der Kunststoffprüfung. Durch die Fortschritte in der elektronischen Messtechnik haben sich sowohl die klassischen Prüfverfahren weiterentwickelt als auch völlig neuartige Methoden etabliert. Die Aussagekraft dieser Kenngrößen zur Quantifizierung der Zusammenhänge zwischen der Mikrostruktur und den makroskopischen Eigenschaften wird dargestellt. Zusätzliche Informationen über die ablaufenden Schädigungsprozesse und -mechanismen können durch die Anwendung gekoppelter zerstörungsfreier Kunststoffprüfverfahren bzw. hybrider Methoden der Kunststoffdiagnostik gewonnen werden. An Hand von Beispielen zur Optimierung von Kunststoffen und Verbunden sowie zur Bewertung von Bauteileigenschaften wird ein werkstoffwissenschaftlich begründeter Einblick in die moderne Kunststoffprüfung vermittelt.
