DESCRIPTION:

Noah L. Ryder said The Bible of Fire Science. This book is not only an introduction to fire dynamics but is the most important single resource to be used as the foundation for studies in fire science. It covers all the applicable basic materials and sets the stage for the student to be able to pursue further studies in a classroom or independently. It should be mandatory reading for anyone involved in fire reconstruction, fire research, or who is simply interested in the field of fire science.I have had the book in my library for over 10 years (including the 1st edition) and find myself continually going back to it during the course . "Fire Dynamics, and introduction to" according to Gaylon R. Claiborne. This is an excellent book on fire dynamics. A great read/study. A background in math, physics, fluid mechanics and combustion is helful prior to reading this book, but is not required. Mr Drysdale is a detailed researcher and an excellent writer. His lack of inclusion of hard data and discussion on the influence of fire sprinklers on fire dynamics is the great missing link of this book. Sad.. Darby A. Gray said The Master Speaks - Again. An excellent update of Dr. Drysdale's "must-have" 1985 introduction to advanced fire physics. Dr. Drysdale brings the reader up-to-date (as of the 1998 publication date) on the state of the art in fire behavior, analysis, prediction and modeling.I bought the paperback, because (a) the hardback is more expensive (Dr. Drysdale is Scottish, after all); and (b) the The Master Speaks - Again An excellent update of Dr. Drysdale's "must-have" 1985 introduction to advanced fire physics.

Fire processes are discussed and quantified in terms of the mechanisms of heat transfer and fluid flow. An Introduction to Fire Dynamics Second Edition Dougal Drysdale University of Edinburgh, UK Fire Safety Engineering, identified in the original edition as 'a relatively new discipline', has since grown significantly in stature, as Fire Safety Engineers around the world begin to apply their skills to complex issues that defy solution by the old 'prescriptive' approach to fire safety. Problems addressed include: * The conditions necessary for ignition and steady burning of combustible materials to occur * How large a fire has to become before fire detectors and sprinkler heads will operate * The circumstances that can lead to flashover in a compartment This book is unique in that it identifies fire science and fire dynamics and provides the scientific background necessary for the development of fire safety engineering as a professional discipline. This second edition has the same structure as the first highly successful text, but has been updated with the latest research results. It is essential reading for all those involved in this wide ranging field, from Fire Prevention Officers to Consulting Engineers, whether involved in problems of fire risk assessment, fire safety design, or fire investigation. It will also be
