Sample text

Although primarily intended for architects, this book can also serve as a useful basic text for the statutory authorities (fire service, building standards, health and safety etc). It is even more important that these groups can understand the first principles of fire on which the legislation is based if they are to be able to enforce it fairly and effectively. One of the common causes of problems between the design team and the authorities is poor communications and a lack of mutual understanding.

Carbon dioxide, foam, sand). The most common extinguishing agent, water, works by cooling the materials involved in the reaction. Without heat the reaction cannot start and if the materials are suddenly cooled the reaction will cease. The third method of extinguishing a fire is by interrupting the reaction itself, and dry powder does this by slowing down the reaction until it ceases to be self-sustaining. Looking at the statistics for fires in occupied buildings, it can be seen that between 33 and 43 percent are confined to the first material ignited and only 9 to 13 percent extend beyond the room of origin, with the greater fire spread occurring in the occupied building other than dwellings.

1 Ignition Combustion is a series of very rapid chemical reactions between a fuel and oxygen (usually from the air), releasing heat and light. For combustion to occur, oxygen, heat and a fuel source must all be present and the removal of any one of these will terminate the reaction. These three ingredients of fire are so essential that they are referred to as the triangle of fire. Removal of any of the three (heat, fuel or oxygen) will terminate the reaction and put out the fire. Flames are the visible manifestation of this reaction between a gaseous fuel and oxygen.
