    The book introduces the structural design of buildings and building elements exposed to fire. The emphasis is on understanding structural behaviour in fire from first principles, allowing structural fire safety to be provided using rational engineering methods based on national structural design codes.

    "The book is aimed at candidates for the NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety but its value goes far beyond such a limited audience, for this is a first-class introduction to all those who need an introduction to safety management generally before focusing on the management of fire in premises/5(9). Synopsis Presenting a comprehensive overview of the fire resistance of building structures, this key text brings together a large volume of material from many sources on this increasingly important topic. Opening with the fundamentals of fires and fire safety, the book gives an introduction to /5(13).

    - Fire Protection Engineering, the official magazine of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers, Winter Fire Protection Engineering in Building Design by Jane I. Lataille, P.E., is an excellent reference on incorporating fire protection standards compliance into the design of buildings. projects. Offshore design gives fire safety a special attention. Ship design contains oil fires and gas explosions in the fire safety rules of tankers but on the oil platforms fire safety is more complex. The objective of the thesis is to serve as a new compact information package for a designer who starts in the offshore design sector.
