This work is one chapter of the 19th NFPA Fire Protection Handbook directed at giving the user simplified methods to estimate quantities used in fire protection engineering. The areas included are: ignitability of solids, energy release rate, flame heights, fire plume temperatures and velocities, radiant heat flux to a target, pre- and post-flashover temperatures, smoke production rate, enclosure smoke filling, thermal fire detector response, ordinary sprinkler fire suppression.
