Fire and cellular polymers by J. M Buist( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This conference, organised jointly by QMC Wolfson Fire & Materials Centre (Queen Mary College) and the Fire Research Station, held at the Tara Hotel in London, UK, was well attended by a wide range of experts in the production and use of polymer foams. Other experts concerned with research, development, testing, specifying, approving and purchasing products incorporating polymer foams for use in the construction, engineering and furniture industries were also present and contributed to the several valuable discussions on specific topics. The conference was successful and achieved its aim of infonning delegates of the fire characteristics of these materials and how they can be assessed in the light of the latest knowledge and technology. The papers presented a wide-ranging review of the main important cellular polymers and their applications in different environments where fire hazards have been encountered. Delegates accepted that there was a continuing need for major growth in the use of cellular polymers and therefore intensified research into development of improved test procedures, fire retardants and smoke suppressants was required

Sprinkler operation and the effect of venting : studies using a zone model by P. L Hinkley( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A mathematical zone model of the interaction between roof vents and sprinklers has been developed in a joint project by the Fire Research Station and Colt International Ltd., following a suggestion by Heselden. It is an extension of the simple zone model generally used for the design of roof venting systems, and enables the radial temperature distribution near to a ceiling with a fire beneath to be calculated. Although the model has only been partially validated, it may be used to indicate the relative importance of many of the factors determining the operation of sprinklers: the dimensions of the compartment, the rate of growth and heat output of the fire, the triggering characteristics of the sprinklers, and venting
