Here is the listing 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.
