9780121942304: Combustion Fundamentals of Fire (Combustion Treatise)

In recent years fire science has made rapid progress due to the increase in research on the subject. This book brings together state-of-the-art contributions on those aspects of fire within the engineering science ofcombustion. Written by leading experts, the book seeks to identify the role of fire in the spectrum of combustion science. Individual chapters address solid phase combustion, turbulent diffusion flames, and thermal plumes. The text then examines the consequences of fire occurring within an enclosure from ignition, through flashover, on to the fully developed phase. Using zonal and CFD methodologies with consideration for fire chemistry, the text also reviews the latest research in the numerical modellingof enclosure fires.
This book will interest all those concerned with fire safety. In particular it will be of value for combustion scientists with an interest in fire and fire protection.

Key Features

From the Back Cover:

In recent years fire science has made rapid progress due to the increase in research on the subject.

This book brings together state-of-the-art contributions on those aspects of fire within the engineering science of combustion.

Written by established authorities, it seeks to identify the role of fire in the spectrum of combustion science. In specialist chapters it deals with solid phase combustion, turbulent diffusion flames and thermal plumes. It then examines the consequences of fire occurring within an enclosure from ignition, through flashover to the fully developed phase. The latest research in the numerical modelling of enclosure fires using zonal and CFD methodologies is reviewed followed by a final chapter devoted to fire chemistry.

This book will be of interest to all concerned with fire safety. In particular it will be of value for combustion scientists with an interest in fire and fire products.

Review:

This valuable book...brings together state-of-the-art contributions on those aspects of fire that are generally recognised to fall within the domain of combusion science...
--FIRE AND FLAMMABILITY BULLETIN
It should be of value to all those who are concerned with advancing the knowledge and understanding of fire as well as to those involved generally with fire safety.
--QUALITY CONCRETE
Any student of fire, or combustion, should want this book. It contains a broad range of the literature, and clear information on most aspects of fire. The authors are very knowledgeable in their respective chapter subject areas, and it is valuable that they have shared their insights and style of explanations with us. in a field where many books do not exist, this is a significant contribution. There is no other book that contains this scope and depth representative of the science of fire.
--COMBUSTION AND FLAME
