No Nice Girl Swears is the original, trailblazing guide to the "new etiquette," brimming with timeless advice on style, romance, and grace, and finally back in print 90 years after its original release. Forewords by today's editor in chief of Town & Country and the editor in chief of Vogue from 1914-1952. Heralded as the go-to guide for soon-to-be debutantes and ladies who'd recently made their debut, No Nice Girl Swears ushered in a "new etiquette" on its release in 1933, much to the shock-and delight-of the high-society crowd of jazz-age America. Today it is equal parts time capsule (how to dress for dinner on your transatlantic voyage) and timeless missive (how to ditch a date who's had a few too many). Worldly-wise socialite Alice-Leone Moats advises on everything from style and dating to travel and party throwing, and weeds through the dos and don'ts of weddings, weekend trips, and the workplace. Her wisdom, though steeped in the charm of her time, endures: treat others-and yourself-with respect, always put your best foot forward, and don't throw a party without champagne. It's just good manners. This keepsake volume includes a new foreword from Stellene Volandes, the editor in chief of Town & Country, the original foreword from Edna Woolman Chase, Vogue's editor in chief from 1914-1952, and a contextualizing preface. It encourages consideration of what etiquette rules we'd like instilled today, and shows how Moats helped usher in a world where women could speak-and act-freely.
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.

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.

Building fire safety and human behavioural responses to these scenarios show the benefits of risk-based fire safety design. It offers huge international appeal with case studies and examples from across the world. It applies probabilistic and stochastic models to fire initiation, fire growth, smoke spread and human behaviour.
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.
It brings together, in a concise format, the key elements of the
loads produced from explosive sources, how they interact with
structures and the way structures respond to them. Explosive
sources include gas, high explosives, dust and nuclear

This guide, essentially an enhanced version of Approved Document B (Volume 2), offers extra insurer-friendly technical guidance for construction professionals about how to protect commercial buildings from fire beyond the building regulations critical life safety measures.With the cost of major fires costing the British economy over GBP7 billion a year and high rates of consequent business failure, property protection is a key business objective for construction clients and their insurers, who will value appropriate measures that are designed in rather than added on as an afterthought.For the first time, this guide aligns guidance for property protection with the much more familiar Approved Document B. It succinctly and transparently annotates the existing document, providing a practical and easy-to-use shortcut to meeting the requirements of the Building Regulations, your clients and their insurers - all in one book.Co-published by the Fire Protection Association and supported by The RISKAuthority (Risk Insight, Strategy and Control Authority) is an annually funded research scheme administered by the FPA and supported by a significant group of UK insurers that conducts research in support of the development and dissemination of best practice on the protection of property and business. Updates in the 2015 edition include: * Fully updated to cover the 2013 revision of Approved Document B: Fire Safety (Volume 2) (2006 edition incorporating 2007, 2010 and 2013 amendments) * Also has the most up-to-date requirements of insurance providers' requirements, which have been updated to reflect modern methods of construction, the green agenda, timber frame (appendix K of ADB), modular construction etc.
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.
