This  book provides essential understanding of flows in fire and smoke  dynamics in enclosures, covering combustion, heat transfer and fire  suppression in more detail than other introductory books. It moves from  the basic equations for turbulent flows with combustion, through a  discussion of the structure of flames, to fire and smoke plumes and  their interaction with enclosure boundaries. This is then applied to  fire dynamics and smoke and heat control in enclosures. 

This  new edition provides considerably more on the fluid mechanics of the  effect of water, and on fire dynamics modelling using Computational  Fluid Dynamics.

  • Presents worked examples taken from practical, everyday fire-related problems
  • Covers  a broad range of topics, from the basics to state-of-the-art computer  simulations of fire and smoke-related fluid mechanics, including the  effect of water
  • Provides extensive treatment of the interaction of water sprays with a fire-driven flow
  • Contains  a chapter on Computational Fluid Dynamics, the increasingly popular  calculation method in the field of fire safety science

The  book serves as a comprehensive guide at the undergraduate and starting  researcher level on fire and smoke dynamics in enclosures, with an  emphasis on fluid mechanics.
