   schema:description "This is the second edition of an introduction to building fire safety that explains from first principles the basic strategies of fire safety design available to the architect. It covers the theoretical base of fire engineering and concludes with a comprehensive review of current information, legislation, British Standards, text books, guidance and sources of advice. It will enable the project team to consider alternative methods of achieving equivalent levels of fire safety and help them to integrate such measures into the design process. Fire from First Principles is particularly appropriate for students of architecture and building as it provides a series of basic tables containing sufficient detailed information for them to apply the principles to design projects. This edition includes a new chapter on the very important issue of fire safety and risk assessment, with examples of its application to different building types."@en ;
