Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? An Introduction to Fire Dynamics Second Edition Dougal Drysdale University of Edinburgh, UK Fire Safety Engineering, identified in the original edition as 'a relatively new discipline', has since grown significantly in stature, as Fire Safety Engineers around the world begin to apply their skills to complex issues that defy solution by the old 'prescriptive' approach to fire safety.

This second edition has the same structure as the first highly successful text, but has been updated with the latest research results. Fire processes are discussed and quantified in terms of the mechanisms of heat transfer and fluid flow.

It is essential reading for all those involved in this wide ranging field, from Fire Prevention Officers to Consulting Engineers, whether involved in problems of fire risk assessment, fire safety design, or fire investigation. It will also be of considerable interest and value to research scientists working in building design, fire physics and chemistry. Read more Read less. No customer reviews.

An Introduction to Fire Dynamics, 2nd Edition by Dougal Drysdale is hard to read, the material is not clear and I found that it did not contain all the formulas necessary to solve Heat Release Rate problems.

Amazon, as usual, did their job well. Good book. This book is not only an introduction to fire dynamics but is the most important single resource to be used as the foundation for studies in fire science. It covers all the applicable basic materials and sets the stage for the student to be able to pursue further studies in a classroom or independently. It should be mandatory reading for anyone involved in fire reconstruction, fire research, or who is simply interested in the field of fire science.

I have had the book in my library for over 10 years including the 1st edition and find myself continually going back to it during the course of my work. A highly recommended read and purchase. An excellent update of Dr. Drysdale's "must-have" introduction to advanced fire physics. Drysdale brings the reader up-to-date as of the publication date on the state of the art in fire behavior, analysis, prediction and modeling.

I bought the paperback, because a the hardback is more expensive Dr. Drysdale is Scottish, after all Readers in active day-to-date fire science application work probably will want the more durable hardback edition. This is an excellent book on fire dynamics. A background in math, physics, fluid mechanics and combustion is helful prior to reading this book, but is not required. Mr Drysdale is a detailed researcher and an excellent writer. His lack of inclusion of hard data and discussion on the influence of fire sprinklers on fire dynamics is the great missing link of this book.
