Seminar on Fire
This Powerpoint presentation (with notes) covers fundamentals of fires and explosions and is recommended as an introduction to the subject including such topics as:
- technical definition of fires and explosions,
- physical characteristics of various fires,
- necessary conditions for fires and explosions, and
- elementary properties, such as flammability limits (LFL and UFL), minimum oxygen concentration (MOC), minimum ignition energy (MIE), flame speeds, burning rates, etc.
This product helps prepare engineers to design systems that reduce the probability of fires and explosions. Some coverage also discusses the design methods used to mitigate fires (venting, fire proofing, fire suppression, etc.), and provides references for safe designs (NFPA, CCPS. etc.).
