Book Summary:


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.
