Description

"The Behavior of Glass and Other Materials Exposed to Fire - Volume I" has been prepared in response to the general dearth of knowledge concerning the occurrence and effects of "flashover" and back draft phenomena which often results from intentional or unintentional venting of building fires following failure of glass materials due to thermal stress or firefighter operations. The behavior of a number of other materials such as char, plastic insulation, plywood and high-strength concrete are presented, as there is a need to learn more about materials that are already common, or rapidly coming on line in the building industry.
