The Journal of Fire Sciences is the leading journal reporting new developments in this technology. Each bimonthly issue publishes peer-reviewed articles by recognized specialists in this technology from around the world. The in-depth articles provide new science-based information useful in materials research and product development. Each Issue covers: New developments in the measurement of the fire performance of materials and products; Advances in fire chemistry and physics, fire retardance technology, analysis of combustion products, smoke toxicology and corrosivity; Engineering aspects of fire safety including fire modeling and assessment of hazard and risk; Advances in standards and performance based codes. In materials R&D, fire safety is often a major concern. Advances have been made in recent years but there are still important goals to achieve in the fire safety of a wide range of materials that pose fire risk. These include materials used in products and structures ranging from apparel and interior furnishings to commercial aircraft and public buildings. Information on the fire behavior and fire retardance of all commercially important flammable materials are covered including plastics, composites, coatings, textiles, and natural materials such as cellulose and fibers. All areas of the fire science of materials are covered including: · Fire chemistry and physics · Measurement of fire properties · Smoke toxicology and corrosivity · Fire modeling · Test methods · Combustion products · Fire retardance chemistry · Hazard and risk assessment · Standards, codes and regulations.
