Lawson, D.I., 1963. RESEARCH INTO FIRE PROTECTION. Fire Research Notes 530


The number of outbreaks of fire has risen rapidly in recent years and it is suggested that this is a consequence of the expanding national economy. Research is being carried out to limit the spread of fire and this incolves finding our more about the fundamentals of fires in buildings, how these develop and the kind of fire conditions to which structures are likely to be subjected. The paper discusses early warning devices and new methods of fire extinction. Finally, it is suggested that more should be known about the economics of structural fire protection as the area of uncertainty in this expenditure is probably about twice the current fire loss.
