Industrial Fire Protection provides an understanding of both the practical and theoretical aspects of fire prevention and protection. It delves into the prevention of fires through design, environment, and protection options. It also examines the legal and regulatory issues, the organizations that issue those laws and regulations, and how to address laws and regulations in developing fire prevention and protection plans. Chemistry, physics, and aerodynamics also play a part in fire dynamics, and mathematical and scientific models are used to predict fire behaviors such as heat transfer, burn rates, spread, flashovers and backdrafts. Occupational or life safety, as well as preservation of property, are main goals of any fire protection system. But also to be considered are the costs of fire protection options as the resources available to assist safety professionals in making risk assessment decisions.

This book is based on selected chapters from The Safety Professionals Handbook, 2nd edition.
