There are lots of great material on Fire Dynamics subject in the internet, buts its always a challenge to figure out a ready list of top books on Fire Dynamics that one can refer to immediately. Even though online materials are good, but nothing can beat the depth of coverage that a book can offer. Hence, we researched the list of Fire Dynamics books which are used by students worldwide and came up with top 10 Book Recommendations on Fire Dynamics subject. These books can be used as a great starting point for anyone studying Fire Dynamics and can also be used as a ready reference for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs.
Most of these Fire Dynamics books are also in the best-seller lists in Amazon website. We have added a brief description of these best books and have also included direct links to Amazon site (as affiliate). This allows anyone to directly visit the site and order printed copies of these best books.
Here is the full list of best reference books on Fire Dynamics.
|1. “An Introduction to Fire Dynamics” by Dougal Drysdale
Book Review: This is a very good textbook for fire safety engineers, researchers, and graduate and under graduate students who are involved in practicing fire dynamics. The book presents up-to-date information that incorporates the latest research and experimental data. The book addresses the fundamentals of fire science and fire dynamics and also provides the scientific background that is needed for the development of fire safety engineering as a profession. The book contains experimental data that is needed for the understanding of fire behavior of materials and contains numerous problems along with solutions .
|2. “Enclosure Fire Dynamics” by Bjorn Karlsson and James G.Quintiere
Book Review: This book helps in filling the gap that is involved in detailed understanding of scientific aspects of enclosure fires. The book provides complete description of enclosure fires and demonstrates how the fire outbreak in the compartment causes environmental changes. The authors provide a very nice and clear presentation of the mechanisms that control the enclosure files and develop simple analytical relationships that are useful in designing buildings for fire safety. The authors also explain the derivation of engineering equations from first principles. This book is very useful for fire protection engineers, researchers and investigators.
|3. “Fundamentals of Fire Phenomena” by James G.Quintiere
Book Review: The book describes all the scientific principles that are involved behind the fire behavior. This book also combines the principles of physics, chemistry, heat transfer, mass transfer and fluid dynamics that is necessary to understand the fundamentals of fire phenomena. The book also covers thermo chemistry that includes mixtures and chemical reactions. The book also discusses premixed flames and spontaneous ignition. This is a very good reference book for practicing engineers in safety and forensic analysis. The book also describes theoretical bases for empirical aspects.
|4. “Tunnel Fire Dynamics” by Anders Lonnermark|
|5. “Tropical Fire Ecology_Climate Change, Land Use And Ecosystem Dynamics” by Cochrane|
|6. “Fire Dynamics Tools (FDTs) Quantitative Fire Hazard Analysis Methods for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Fire Protection Inspection Program” by NRC Staff: United States Nuclear Regulat|
|7. “Fire Dynamics with MyFireKit ” by Gregory E. Gorbett|
|8. “Fire and Vegetation Dynamics: Studies from the North American Boreal Forest (Cambridge Studies in Ecology) ” by Edward A. Johnson|
|9. “Fire Dynamics Simulator (Version 4) – Technical Reference Guide” by nist|
|10. “Fire Dynamics (Brady Fire)” by Gregory E. Gorbett|
