State Of Fire Research And Safety

Quintiere, J.G., 1989. State Of Fire Research And Safety. Fire Safety Science 2: 15-28. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.2-15


A review is made of available international statistics on the costs and losses due to fire. Estimates are also made on the level of fire research carried out by different countries. Views are presented on strategies for reducing the losses and costs by fire. An example is given to illustrate a rational use of test data to predict fire growth on materials.
