SFPE Handbook of Fire Protection Engineering

The third edition of the SFPE Handbook of Fire Protection Engineering represents an update of
existing material with the addition of some important new subject matter. The rapid assimilation
of performance-based design in fire protection has underscored the importance of this
handbook. While the process of performance-based design has been documented in detail,
the fundamental knowledge base has remained fragmented. This handbook, as it has been
from its inception, is a contribution toward documenting and integrating the theoretical and
applied bases of fire safety engineering. The need for concise description of the theoretical basis
of fire protection engineering in conjunction with material on engineering calculations and
practice is clear. Significant effort was made to provide a more useful and direct link from
some of the fundamental chapters to actual use in practice. Examples include a new chapter
on calculation of heat fluxes to surfaces and new treatment of ignition phenomena.
The changes in many chapters reflect the incremental and slow progress made in improving
the knowledge base in the area of fire dynamics. One notable exception to this slow change has
been in the area of egress and human movement. Significant new material in this area was prepared
by Guylène Proulx. The challenges and complexities of introducing a new fire suppression
technology, water mist systems, are covered in a new chapter. The widespread use of field
modeling as a practical tool in engineering design motivated the inclusion of a new chapter on
that subject. Additional treatment of risk assessment methodologies, particularly as they are
applied, is included as sectors of the profession move more quickly in that direction
