About the book

FIRE RESEARCH AND ENGINEERING focuses on Compartment fires, Fire Modelling, Fire Protection and Industrial Applications, and Fire Protection and Material Characterization. The experimental results of the parametric studies in a compartment fire are presented for the burning of solid, liquid and gaseous fuel. The fire and fire protection measures in nuclear power plant is extensively discussed with a focus on cable fire. In addition, the fire protections in steel plants, shipbuilding & ship repair industries, firework industries, coal conveyor belts, offshore installations etc. and different methods of fire prevention and characterization of fire material are also presented. The book will be extremely useful to researchers, industry experts and students working in various aspects of fire engineering.
