Flammability Testing of Materials Used in Construction, Transport and Mining
- V Apte, formerly Fire Science and Technology Laboratory, CSIRO, Australia
The book begins by defining flammability and the main types of test available. Building on this foundation, a group of chapters then reviews tests for key materials used in buildings and their contents. There are chapters on wood, external cladding and sandwich panels as well as the flammability of walls and ceilings. Tests for furniture fabrics, cables and electrical appliances are also reviewed. A final group of chapters discusses other types of test, particularly in the transport sector, including chapters on flammability testing for railway passenger cars, aircraft, road and rail tunnels.
With its distinguished international team of contributors, Flammability testing of materials used in construction, transport and mining is a standard reference for civil and transport engineers in particular.
Regulators, researchers and all those concerned with the flammability testing of materials over three industrial sectors: construction, transportation, and mining; Civil and transport engineers
