Principles of Fire Behavior, Hardback Book


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.
