    Drysdales book is by far the most comprehensive - everyone in the office has a copy now including me. It holds just about everything you need to know about fire science. (Review of An Introduction to Fire Dynamics, 2nd Edition) After 25 years as a bestseller, Dougal Drysdales classic introduction has been brought up-to-date and expanded to incorporate the latest research and experimental data. Dr. James Quintiere received his PhD from New York University in , and is currently Professor Emeritus, Department of Fire Protection, at the University of Maryland in College Park. He has over thirty years of experience in fire research and teaching, and has written the popular textbook PRINCIPLES OF FIRE BEHAVIOR, and co-authored ENCLOSURE FIRE DYNAMICS with Bjorn Karlsson.

    The flammability of upholstered furniture is a major concern of engineers and others across a wide swath of organizations. This book was written to provide its audience with the science and engineering need to better understand the combustibility of the products they manufacture, purchase, and try to extinguish. The fire behavior triangle Fire behavior means its rate of spread (in feet/hour) and its intensity (that is, how hot it burns and how long its flame is). Once a fire ignites in forest or rangeland, its behavior depends on the three factors that make up the fire behavior triangle: the amount and arrangement.

    studying these fundamentals. B.1 T-Squared (t) Fire Power Law Heat Release Rate2 B Introduction The primary mechanism driving the growth of a fire is the flame spreading across a fuel item or between multiple fuel items. This growing fire will continue until one or more of the following conditions exist(s).   It holds just about everything you need to know about fire science."
