Fire Engineering and emergency planning Research and Applications by R. Barham. This book represents the proceedings of Euro Fire 95, the first European Symposium on Research and Applications in Fire Engineering and Emergency Planning. Throughout Europe there is a considerable number of fires reported each year, resulting in the loss of many lives. The amount of damage to the environment and to the property is colossal, with reinstatement work on the non-domestic property often costing hundreds of millions of ecu. Add to this the cost of business interruption and increased insurance premiums and the imperative of lessening the risk of fire, and for good emergency planning, through education and research becomes obvious.
