The application of science, art, and engineering of architecture is vital in creating a space within the within the buildings using several elements like floors, roofs, walls, doors, windows, heams, columns forming structural boundaries and furnishing them for human interaction. Such design needs to be sustainable, enjoyable, and economical and protect against associated hazards that threaten life and or damage to space so created.
The Architects find out the intended use of spaces, select the correct techno-legal regime regulating building construction activities in the area, and plan the space and services as necessary for the use of the building in conformity with the statutory requirements. For example, the National Building Code of India, 2016, and the local building Byelaws/Development Control Regulations provide fire and life safety norms. These would
ensure fire & life safety in the space designed.
The fire laws in most states and union territories empower the fire service authorities to check the building spaces and certify the fitness of the building. The fire laws further cast upon the obligation to maintaining the fire and life safety measures installed in the building. These buildings are test-checked by the fire service authorities or any other authority empowered under fire laws. The test checks are also called fire audits.
he fire audit is a complex process. The fire services or the fire officers have their methodologies to carry out fire inspection/fire audits. They, however, ignore many critical issues for one reason or the other. In addition, there is no standard for carrying out such an inspection or a fire audit. A standard format would help to minimize such gaps.
This book would be helpful to the stakeholders to identify the fire and life safety requirements appropriate to the risk and other statutory requirements, installation thereof, and prepare the report with minimal chances of missing out any. The users are requested to give their feedback for further improvement as may be necessary.
Hydraulics is a branch of science that deals with the flow of water through the pipes and hydraulic machines.
It is a difficult and important subject and very interesting if one has clearly understood the basic laws governing the flow.
The book covers the topics of common interest to fire ground commanders and the students appearing in examinations at various levels. The book is equally useful for both.
This book contains the concepts of quantification of risk, performance based design and required level of fire safety in various buildings.
A brief about the fire, evacuation and risk modeling is given in the book. It also contains the national and international regulatory requirements for the benefit of the reader.
This book is helpful in assisting the fire safety professionals, architects, structural engineers, building consultants, facility managers, real estate developers, regulatory authorities and stakeholders in evaluating building life safety and property protection goals.
Accidents caused by fire are a disaster, and it is best to take the necessary precautions to prevent them. The Fire Technology Handbook is a reference book that serves as a guide for firefighters and safety officers who work in the fire service. The book covers the basics of firefighting technology. Due to the large number of flammable products used in various industrial processes, the risk of fire accidents in industrial establishments is high. In this book, special attention is given to eliminating the risk by pointing out certain preventive measures that must be taken.
According to the book, high-rise buildings that do not give the necessary attention to fire safety measures are at great risk. The book discusses in detail the prevention of fire in high-rise buildings. It also provides guidelines on how certain industrial raw materials and finished products should be properly stored to prevent fire incidents. It also guides the proper handling of common firefighting equipment and fire suppression devices.
Effective fire protection in the industry can only be ensured if personnel are fully aware of the fire and explosion hazards in the workplace while responding quickly and correctly in the event of an accident.
This book provides the basic knowledge and information needed to do this; the fundamentals of combustion and explosion phenomena and their effects, extinguishing methods and related topics, properties, and hazards of flammable substances commonly used in industry.
These fundamentals and concepts form the basis of industrial fire safety management. The subject matter is presented clearly and concisely and industrial personnel involved in the fire protection function will find it a useful source of information, while for students of fire protection engineering the book will provide a good background for further study of industrial fire protection.
It deals extensively with a number of aspects, including technical as well as practical aspects of fire safety in buildings. Starting with the basic information and architectural aspects on fire safety, the book proceeds to discuss structural fire protection, structural design, building services, fire protection systems, and fire safety codes, early detection of fire, fire safety evaluation, extinguishment, and ventilators to prevent the dispersion of smoke and concludes with rehabilitation of fire damaged buildings.
