Title Importance of an analysis into main components for the assessment of hazards due to the thermal decomposition of materials
Original title Intérêt de l'analyse en composantes principales lors de l'évaluation du risque dû à la décomposition thermique des matériaux [in French]
Bibliographic information Mar. 1994, Vol.2, No.11, p.17-26. Illus. 12 ref.
Abstract A large amount of data must be taken into account for the overall assessment of toxicological hazards due to the thermal decomposition of materials in a fire. A simple study of correlations provides good information on the interaction of various factors but a determination of the main components remains undoubtedly the most effective statistical method for risk assessment.
