|Title:||Estimating Temperatures in Compartment Fires|
|Published:||December 31, 2002|
|Abstract:||The ability to predict temperattures developed in compartment fires is of great significance to the fire protection professional. There are many uses for the knowledge of compartment fire temperatures, including the prediction of (1) the onset of hazardous conditions, (2) property and structural damage, (3) changes in burning rate, (4) ignition of objects, and (5) the onset of flashover. The fundamental principles underlying compartment fires are presented in Chapter 5. This chapter (6) gives a number of simplified solution techniques.|
