Fire Dynamics and Safety

David G. Lilley

Lilley & Associates, USA

Abstract
Catastrophic fires still occur, and many people still donít realize just how quickly a seemingly simple fire can grow rapidly into an inescapable furious inferno. Information, analysis and calculations of fire dynamic phenomena can assist in understanding and applying scientific information to real-world fire situations. Recent extensive study, research, experimentation and field observations and measurements have led to the need for critical evaluation of fire phenomena and its simulation, see Lilley (2004) and NFPA (2004). Fire dynamicists can develop an appreciation for technical/scientific understanding of the phenomena and its applicability to real-world practical down-to-earth situations.
