Summary
"Enclosure Fire Dynamics provides a complete description of enclosure fires and how the outbreak of a fire in a compartment causes changes in the environment. The authors offer a clear presentation of the dominant mechanisms controlling enclosure fires and develop simple, analytical relationships useful in designing buildings for fire safety. They demonstrate how to derive engineering equations from first principles, stating the assumptions clearly and showing how the resulting equations compare to experimental data."--BOOK JACKET. "Enclosure Fire Dynamics will enhance the knowledge of professional fire protection engineers, researchers, and investigators, and help build a strong foundation for engineering students."--Jacket
