Structural Fire Engineering gives practical design guidance on the application of structural fire engineering to specialist structural engineers; bringing together fire engineering and structural engineering - disciplines which are interlinked in design of structures. Structural Fire Engineering discusses the European standards in the context of fire engineering design and conformity to the requirements of the regulations. Containing a number of worked examples to illustrate the options for design, this book will primarily demystify the subject of structural fire engineering and identify the available design options to fulfil statutory requirements. The final chapters deal with specific issues which have arisen over the last few years and identify gaps in knowledge in relation to the performance of buildings in fire.

R1,054 R967 Discovery Miles 9 670 Save R87 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book describes principles, industry practices and evolutionary methodologies for advanced safety studies, which are helpful in effectively managing volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) environments within the framework of quantitative risk assessment and management and associated with the safety and resilience of structures and infrastructures with tolerance against various types of extreme conditions and accidents such as fires, explosions, collisions and grounding. It presents advanced computational models for characterizing structural actions and their effects in extreme and accidental conditions, which are highly nonlinear and non-Gaussian in association with multiple physical processes, multiple scales, and multiple criteria. Probabilistic scenario selection practices and applications are presented. Engineering practices for structural crashworthiness analysis in extreme conditions and accidents are described. Multidisciplinary approaches involving advanced computational models and large-scale physical model testing are emphasized. The book will be useful to students at a post-graduate level as well as researchers and practicing engineers.

The Design and Layout of Fire Sprinkler Systems (Paperback, 2nd New edition): Mark Bromann The Design and Layout of Fire Sprinkler Systems (Paperback, 2nd New edition)
Mark Bromann
R4,523 Discovery Miles 45 230 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Although effective fire sprinkler systems are crucial to public safety, for years, the designers of those systems had few published resources to reference and guide them through their design processes. The first edition of this book changed all that, and now The Design and Layout of Fire Sprinkler Systems Second Edition suits their needs even better.

Written and thoroughly updated by a fire prevention engineer with more than 20 years of experience, this book provides a complete, systematic introduction to automatic fire sprinkler design and layout, from design basics, code requirements, and pipe hanging to hydraulic calculations, retrofits, and details on fire pumps. The author carefully outlines all of a designer's responsibilities and includes an entire chapter dedicated to preparing for the NICET exam.

More than 150 sample diagrams, checklists, sample forms, spec sheets, photographs, and a glossary complement the text, and the larger page size of this edition permits clear presentation of diagrams and schematics. The Design and Layout of Fire Sprinkler Systems not only builds the foundation and skills of newcomers to the field, but also provides an outstanding reference for fire safety professionals, building inspectors, insurance underwriters, and municipal officials.

Advanced Analysis and Design for Fire Safety of Steel Structures systematically presents the latest findings on behaviours of steel structural components in a fire, such as the catenary actions of restrained steel beams, the design methods for restrained steel columns, and the membrane actions of concrete floor slabs with steel decks. Using a systematic description of structural fire safety engineering principles, the authors illustrate the important difference between behaviours of an isolated structural element and the restrained component in a complete structure under fire conditions. The book will be an essential resource for structural engineers who wish to improve their understanding of steel buildings exposed to fires. It is also an ideal textbook for introductory courses in fire safety for master's degree programs in structural engineering, and is excellent reading material for final-year undergraduate students in civil engineering and fire safety engineering. Furthermore, it successfully bridges the information gap between fire safety engineers, structural engineers and building inspectors, and will be of significant interest to architects, code officials, building designers and fire fighters. Dr. Guoqiang Li is a Professor at the College of Civil Engineering of Tongji University, China; Dr. Peijun Wang is an Associate Professor at the School of Civil Engineering of Shandong University, China.

A Complete Training Solution for Hazardous Materials Technicians and Incident Commanders! In 1982, the authors Mike Hildebrand and Greg Noll, along with Jimmy Yvorra, first introduced the concept of the Eight-Step Process (c) for managing hazardous materials (hazmat) incidents when their highly regarded manual, Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident was published. Now in its revised fourth edition, this text is widely used by fire fighters, hazmat teams, bomb squads, industrial emergency response teams, and other emergency responders who may manage unplanned hazardous materials incidents. As a result of changing government regulations and consensus standards, as well as the need for terrorism response training, Mr. Noll and Mr. Hildebrand have modified and refined their process of managing hazmat incidents and added enhanced content, tips, case studies, and detailed charts and tables. The Revised Fourth Edition contains comprehensive content covering: * Hazard assessment and risk evaluation * Identifying the problem and implementing the response plan * Hazardous materials properties and effects * Identifying and coordinating resources * Decontamination procedures * The Eight-Step Process (c) * Personal protective equipment selection * Procedures for terminating the incident The Revised Fourth Edition's dynamic features include: * NFPA 1072 and 472 Correlation Guide for the Hazardous Materials Technician and Hazardous Materials Incident Commander levels * Correlation matrix to the National Fire Academy's Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) Bachelor's (Non-Core) Managerial Issues in Hazardous Materials Course (C0274) * Realistic, detailed case studies * Practical, step-by-step skill drills * Important hazardous materials technician and safety tips Also available to support Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident, Fourth Edition: * Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident, Fourth Edition Field Operations Guide * Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident, Fourth Edition Student Workbook * Navigate TestPrep: Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident * Hazardous Materials: Awareness and Operations, Third Editio
