Fire Safety is the science of fire and the means of protection against it. Being multidisciplinary in nature, the subject is closely related to chemical engineering, building services, electrical, electronics, structural and civil engineering and industrial engineering. There is a dearth of books on this subject, and therefore, the author aims to provide readers with a lucidly written, comprehensive text explaining the fundamentals of the fire process and means of protection. Comprising eleven chapters, this well-illustrated book with data tables begins with the introduction of the subject and then proceeds to explain fire process, its chemistry, heat and temperature in fire, hydraulics, active and passive fire protection systems, risk management and insurance, and finally investigations and reconstructions of fire incidents. The book appends useful information on fire safety including cases to explain the causes of fire, Indian Standards on fire safety, explosion and properties of some flammable materials. Fire safety engineering students and professionals will find this book of immense use to them.

Am 5. August 1949 setzt ein Flugzeug über den rauhen Bergen von Montana 15 Fallschirmspringer des Forstdienstes ab. Ihre Aufgabe: die Bekämpfung eines zunächst ungefährlich eingestuften Waldbrandes in einer unwegsamen Schlucht. »Smokejumpers« waren die jungen Männer dieser Mannschaft, Feuerspringer, und die meisten von ihnen erstickten, verbrannten oder erlagen ihren schweren Brandwunden. Nur zwei entkamen dem Inferno und überlebten die Katastrophe. Mehr als ein Vierteljahrhundert später greift Norman Maclean die ungeschriebene Geschichte dieses Feuers auf und entdeckt darin alle Elemente einer klassischen Tragödie.

Guidelines for Determining the Probability of Ignition of a Released Flammable Mass

Author: CCPS (Center for Chemical Process Safety)

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 1118870344

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 264

Complemented by an estimating tool spreadsheet based on a fixed set of chemicals to assist in risk estimations, Probability of Ignition of a Released Flammable Mass converts a "best guess" to a calculated value based on available information and current technology. The text documents and explains the science and background of the technology-based approach. The tool, when populated with appropriate data, yields an estimate of the probability that a defined release of a flammable material will ignite if exposed to an ignition source. This information can be used to make risk assessments with a higher degree of confidence than estimates made before and it provides valuable information for use in the development of a facility's Emergency Response Plan.
