Abstract:

In this volume, the fire safety aspects of polymeric materials used in ships, boats, craft, and devices - both for commercial and military service - are examined, with primary focus on improving fire safety. The study addresses a the physical and chemical parameters that influence flammability, smoke, and toxicity b the physical and chemical material combinations that are used c the use of these materials in devices, subsystems and systems d the geometry, position, and environments of the material, and e the contribution of the materials to system performance in normal and abnormal modes under fire conditions.
