Toxic fire effluents are responsible for the majority of fire deaths, and an increasing large majority of fire injuries, driven by the widespread and increasing use of synthetic polymers. Fire safety has focused on preventing ignition and reducing flame spread through reducing the rate of heat release, while neglecting the important issue of fire toxicity. This is the first reference work on fire toxicity and the only scientific publication on the subject in the last 15 years. Assessment of toxic effects of fires is increasingly being recognised as a key factor in the assessment of fire hazards. This book raises important issues including the types of toxic effluents that different fires produce, their physiological effects, methods for generation and assessment of fire toxicity, current and proposed regulations and approaches to modelling the toxic impact of fires. The contributors to Fire toxicity represent an international team of the leading experts in each aspect of this challenging and important field. This book provides an important reference work for professionals in the fire community, including fire fighters, fire investigators, regulators, fire safety engineers, and formulators of fire-safe materials. It will also prove invaluable to researchers in academia and industry. Investigates the controversial subject of toxic effluents as the cause of the majority of fire deaths and injuries Describes the different types of toxic effluents and the specific fires that they produce, their physiological effects and methods for generation Provides an overview of national and international fire safety regulations including current and proposed regulations such as a standardized framework for prediction of fire gas toxicity

Combustion Products from Ventilation Controlled Fires

Toxic smoke from fires is regularly identified as the leading cause of death in fire casualties. In most countries statistics suggest more than 70% of fire deaths are caused by either toxic smoke inhalation, or heat burns and toxic smoke inhalation. In most cases, fire victims are impaired from escape due

Fire and Polymers

As the focus of fire research shifts from improvements in flame extinguishing to the development of fire-retardant and fire-resistant materials, polymers are playing an increasingly important role. This new volume provides an examination of this important research. Among the topics covered in its 34 chapters are: toxic smoke and particulate matter;

Fire and Polymers

This text represents the state of the art in the field of fire and polymers, with specific emphasis on non-halogen approaches to flame retardancy, including additives and intrinsically fire-retardant polymers (fire-smart polymers). It is divided into six sections: noncomposites, fire-smart polymers, polyurethanes, non-halogen (ecofriendly) flame retardants, halogen flame retardants and
