Paul R. DeCicco
Baywood Publishing Company, 2002 - Technology & Engineering - 207 pages
Designed in response to the general dearth of knowledge concerning the occurrence and effects of flashover and back draft phenomena which often results from intentional or unintentional venting of building fires following failure of glass materials due to thermal stress or firefighter operations.
