Ever-Increasing Population And Demand Of Built-Up Spaces Have Constrained Our Society To Go For Compact And Multi-Storeyed Building Premises. In Metropolitan Cities, There Was No Choice For Town Planners But To Go For Vertical Expansion Rather Than Horizontal. The Net Result Was Construction Of Thousands Of Multi-Storeyed Complexes Which Needed Proper Fire Security Arrangements. Legislation Exists At Different Levels Incorporating Different Type Of Restrictions To The Designers And Occupiers Of The Building. A Vast Amount Of Guidelines Exists But Not Known To Everybody Engaged In The Field.This Book Is Designed To Cover This Gap And Will Be A Right Choice In This Direction. It Comprehensively Deals Not Only With The Fundamentals Of Fire Engineering Appends Different Building Bye-Laws And Relevant Abstracts From Bis And National Building Codes, Nfpa, Lpa, Tac, Etc. But Reviews Structural Safety, And Provides Sufficient Multi Disciplinary Guidelines For Selecting Proper Gadgets For Complete Fire Safety Of Building Complexes. A Complete Treatise On Fire Security Of Its Own Kind For The First Time In India.
