9780070125315: Fire Safety in Tall Buildings

For professionals who plan, design, construct, or operate high-rise buildings, this indispensable sourcebook presents state-of-the-art fire safety technology and procedures that are currently in use around the world. From the sophisticated methods of emergency egress developed for the disabled in the United Kingdom, to fire provisions for buildings subject to earthquakes in California, this comprehensive book provides a unique international perspective on such topics as: a new, unified approach to analyzing the fire resistance of entire structural systems; techniques for evaluating the fire performance of steel, concrete, and other structural materials, including a new computer model of fire engineering practice; critical aspects of human behavior in a fire; and use of elevators as a means of evacuation. No other book on fire engineering for tall structures will have as much influence on future design policies and general fire safety approaches; it is an essential reference for engineers, developers, designers, scientists, code officials, and others.
