I have been in the fire investigative arena for the last fifteen years. I have read many books on the subject, and this is the most authoritative and comprehensive book I have read. Chapter 14 relating to failures of appliances contains useful, practical information and has very informative pictures. The author has obviously referenced many professionals in our business to create this work. If you conduct fire investigations for a living, then you should own and read this book!

Even though ignition is the most important event in the course of a fire (no ignition: no fire), up until now there has not been a handbook devoted to this vital safety topic. The Handbook is a massive resource, consisting of 1116 pages, tightly set in a 2-column, 8.5' x 11' (215 x 280 mm) format. The book includes 627 black-and-white figures, 447 tables, and 140 color plates. The Handbook is divided into two main sections: Chapters 1 through 13 include presentations of the fundamental principles of ignition sources and of the response of ignitable materials to heat or energy in various forms. Chapters 14 and 15 constitute an 'encyclopedia of ignition,' containing extensive information on individual materials, devices, and products. Chapter 14 comprises alphabetically-arranged narrative descriptions of ignition properties and hazards for substances ranging from 'Accelerants in incendiary fires' to 'Zirconium.' Chapter 15 contains database tables giving information on 473 pure chemical compounds and over 500 commercial or natural products, including such substances as dusts, fuels, lubricants, plastics, and woods. For long life and ease of use, the book has been manufactured using the highest quality, traditional book production processes-the book is printed on acid-free paper, the pages are sewn (rather than glued together), and the book is bound in real cloth covers. Two placeholder ribbons are provided. Fire safety is a truly interdisciplinary specialty and includes professionals working as fire protection engineers, fire investigators, fire safety scientists, loss prevention specialists, hazmat specialists, risk managers, insurance adjustors and SIU personnel, chemical process safety engineers, forensic scientists, and others. The educational backgrounds of these individuals will be diverse, especially as concerns their understanding of mathematics. Thus, a special approach was taken in preparing the Ignition Handbook-qualitative presentations and mathematical presentations are segregated into different sections in the book. The qualitative information will be of value to all fire safety professionals, while those without a good foundation in mathematics can omit the mathematical sections. The Handbook will also be of interest to electrical engineers, since it is the first book to examine electrical fires from a systematic, comprehensive point of view. Much of the research on electrical fires has been done in Japan, and the Ignition Handbook contains the first English presentation for most of this work. The Ignition Handbook treats in detail not just ignition of fires but also initiation of explosives and pyrotechnics and explosions of unstable substances. Ignition is defined as the 'initiation of combustion' but many unstable substances react in ways where heat is produced by a non-combustion reaction, e.g., decomposition or polymerization. The scope of the Handbook includes the initiation of exothermic reactions in such substances. The sections that deal with hazardous materials will be of special interest to workers in this field, because the Handbook endeavors to present ignition aspects in a more thorough way than can be found in existing monographs.

HASH(0x919e1054) étoiles sur 5 More is Better 18 novembre 2012

I have learned more about ignition and it's causes from the first few chapters of this book, than I have from any other book that I have looked at or read. It is a dry read and may cause you to doze off, but if you are looking for information on ignition sources this is the book to have. The 15 chapters and over 1000 pages of information mark it as the go to book for arson investigators, firefighters or other interested parties. I highly recommend this book.

One of the most thorough text books on fire protection engineering ever written, if not the most thorough. The principles of ignition are often ignored at many universities which teach fire protection engineering. The main science behind ignition should be read by every fire protection engineer and authority having jurisdiction.
