31. Chapter 2Combustion Products and Their Effects on Life Safety
Published: 6/30/2008
Authors: Richard George Gann, Nelson P Bryner
Abstract: All combustibles produce heat and smoke that, in sufficiently high concentration, may be hazardous to life safety. Incapacitation can result from exposure to the asphyxiant gases, irritant gases, and heat. Irritant gases and visible smoke can reduce ...
