Engineers need to be able to test the flammability of the materials they use in buildings and other structures. However, the range of test procedures and regulations in this important area is often confusing. Flammability testing of materials used in construction, transport and mining provides an authoritative guide to current best practice in ensuring safe design.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. There has been a lot of rapid change in fire standards, safety regulations and product manufacturing over the last ten years. In this revised edition, with an international balance in authorship (Europe, USA, Australia and NZ) chapters are brought fully up-to-date and standards and regulations are cross-referenced. In those cases where there have been new flammability test methods proposed then the authors have addressed these too.In this revised edition information is provided on fire testing of products/ systems/ components/ and materials used in various industrial sectors. Features up-to-date developments in fire safety standards, regulations, performance requirements and product manufacturing Covers a broad range of different application fields, such as furniture and building construction, transport and mining Features new fire tests and (ISO, ASTM, and En) standards

Toxic fire effluents are responsible for the majority of fire deaths, and an increasing large majority of fire injuries, driven by the widespread and increasing use of synthetic polymers. Fire safety has focused on preventing ignition and reducing flame spread through reducing the rate of heat release, while neglecting the important issue of fire toxicity. This is the first reference work on fire toxicity and the only scientific publication on the subject in the last 15 years. Assessment of toxic effects
