Title Evaluation of the consequences of warehouse fires
Original title Evaluation des conséquences d'un incendie d'entrepôt [in French]
Bibliographic information July-Aug. 2005, No.82, p.34-36. Illus.
Abstract Understanding of the phenomena that control large industrial fires, such as warehouse fires requires research. The French national occupational safety and health institute (INRS) has committed itself to developing a reference method for determining the consequences of warehouse fires. The method involves five steps. This article describes the initial phase of the research aimed at developing an understanding of the combustion process by means of small-scale tests and modelling.
