E-Books: Fire Engineering and Emergency Planning

5 min read

Fire Engineering and emergency planning Research and Applications by R. Barham. This book represents the proceedings of Euro Fire 95, the first European Symposium on Research and Applications in Fire Engineering and Emergency Planning. Throughout Europe there is a considerable number of fires reported each year, resulting in the loss of many lives. The amount of damage to the environment and to the property is colossal, with reinstatement work on the non-domestic property often costing hundreds of millions of ecu. Add to this the cost of business interruption and increased insurance premiums and the imperative of lessening the risk of fire, and for good emergency planning, through education and research becomes obvious.

This book represents the proceedings of EuroFire’95, the first European Symposium on Research and Applications in Fire Engineering and Emergency Planning, held at the
Centre Européen de la Chambre des Artisans et des Métiers (CECAM), Nîmes, France, from the 25th to the 27th of March, 1995. The Symposium was organized by the Department of Built Environment (Centre for Research in Fire and Explosion Studies) of the University of Central Lancashire, England, with the assistance of the European
Commission (Human Capital and Mobility Programme) and the Institution of Fire
Engineers. The intended purpose is to make a start on “bridging the gap” between the various sectors of the European fire community, to promulgate state of the art applications, and to flag up new areas and trends in research and practice.

Fire Engineering and Emergency Planning Book’s Cover

To begin a discussion on research in fire engineering the mutual links between FireEngineering, Combustion, and Explosion Science and Industry (see Fig. 1) should be considered.
Fire Engineering (FE) is essentially based on Combustion and Explosion Science (CES) which has been providing the necessary background, solutions of principle, new qualitative information, methods, and techniques. Also, it puts forward new concepts for
FE and revises former approaches.
From this perspective, it is important to follow the modern trends in CES that seem promising for FE and could be incorporated into FE research in the near future.

E-Books: Fire Engineering and Emergency Planning

This is the first main question arising when evaluating the research in FE along with the link CES FE (see the sketch in Fig. 1):
• What are the most important modern studies in CES from the perspective of FE? In turn, FE tends to adopt, use, and apply those issues that originated with CES. Eventually, this stimulates new engineering solutions, implementation, and improvement of codes, regulations, and standards, development of proper preventive anti-fire and anti-explosion measures,
