John A. Purkiss, Long-Yuan Li
March 30, 2017

Designing structures to withstand the effects of fire is challenging, and requires a series of complex design decisions. This third edition of Fire Safety Engineering Design of Structures provides practising fire safety engineers with the tools to design structures to withstand fires. This text...

Post-Earthquake Fire Analysis in Urban Structures: Risk Management Strategies

Behrouz Behnam
October 20, 2016

Post-earthquake fire is one of the most complicated problems resulting from earthquakes and presents a serious risk to urban structures. Most standards and codes ignore the possibility of post-earthquake fire; thus it is not factored in when determining the ability of buildings to withstand load....

Fire Protection Approaches in Site Plan Review

Mohammad Nabeel Waseem
October 28, 2015

The outcome of a fire review can greatly impact the internal fire and life safety features, as well as the architectural design of a building. An insider’s guide for both novice and expert, Fire Protection Approaches in Site Plan Review provides the framework needed to design and evaluate a...

Performance-Based Fire Safety Design

Morgan J. Hurley, Eric R. Rosenbaum
April 14, 2015

Master an Approach Based on Fire Safety Goals, Fire Scenarios, and the Assessment of Design Alternatives Performance-Based Fire Safety Design demonstrates how fire science can be used to solve fire protection problems in the built environment. It also provides an understanding of the...

Fire Safety Management Handbook, Third Edition

Daniel E. Della-Giustina
February 07, 2014

Safety managers today are required to go beyond compliance with the latest fire codes to implement proactive fire safety management programs that improve profitability. By reducing property loss insurance premiums and fostering an efficient work environment to help realize quality gains, safety...

Energetic Materials: Thermophysical Properties, Predictions, and Experimental Measurements

Veera Boddu, Paul Redner
December 07, 2010

The development, processing, and lifecycle environmental impact analysis of energetic materials all pose various challenges and potential dangers. Because safety concerns severely limit study of these substances at most research facilities, engineers will especially appreciate a tool that...

Fire Protection for Commercial Facilities

Mark Bromann
October 29, 2010

When confronted with a fire protection problem, building management is often desperately short on information and know-how in this critical component of protection for their own facility. It is not that the material is hard to grasp, but that there is so much of it that makes the task seem so...

Fire Protection: Systems and Response

Robert Burke
November 06, 2007

The modern definition of firefighter no longer means “putting the wet stuff on the red stuff.” Emergency responders answer incidents ranging from fire alarm activations to elevator rescues and medical emergencies more often than full-blown fires. Consequently, responders increasingly interface with...

Industrial Fire Protection Handbook, Second Edition

R. Craig Schroll
March 28, 2002

Fundamentally, fire prevention and control refer to systems and practices that increase a facility's ability to avoid fires, limit the development and spread of fires, and rapidly and effectively control fires. Changing safety codes and regulations along with recent technological advances have...

The Design and Layout of Fire Sprinkler Systems, Second Edition

Mark Bromann, Mark Bromann
April 05, 2001

Although effective fire sprinkler systems are crucial to public safety, for years, the designers of those systems had few published resources to reference and guide them through their design processes. The first edition of this book changed all that, and now The Design and Layout of Fire Sprinkler...
