Sample text

There are three basic mechanisms of heat transfer, namely conduction, convection and radiation. While it is probable that all three contribute in every fire, it is often found that one predominates at a given stage, or in a given location. Thus, conduction determines the rate of heat flow in and through solids. It is important in problems relating to ignition and spread of flame over combustible solids (Chapters 6 and 7), and to fire resistance, where knowledge of heat transfer through compartment boundaries and into elements of the structure is required (Chapter 10).
