Book Description :

This book introduces a smart fire detection system designed using a wireless sensor network and fuzzy methods. This system predicts, controls, and provides alerts to various events based on intelligent techniques. Routing protocols are performed based on intelligent procedures in which they are classified into two main groups: static and dynamic. Static protocols are used to transmit data packets between stationary nodes, while dynamic protocols are applied to transmit messages between rescue teams and fire departments. The active and passive states are specified for sensor nodes to balance the remaining energy of the nodes and prolong the network lifetime. The probability of explosion, fire, burn, and suffocation is determined based on fuzzy procedures. People affected can be guided to the exit at event places based on an intelligent method. In addition, members and dispatch routes of rescue and support teams are selected using intelligent methods to reduce financial losses and human casualties. The book will be useful for professors, researchers, and engineers in computer and electrical engineering.

Book Description :

Fire safety regulations in many countries require Fire Risk Assessment to be carried out for buildings such as workplaces and houses in multiple occupation. This duty is imposed on a "Responsible Person" and also on any other persons having control of buildings in compliance with the requirements specified in the regulations. Although regulations only require a qualitative assessment of fire risk, a quantitative assessment is an essential first step for performing cost-benefit analysis of alternative fire strategies to comply with the regulations and selecting the most cost-effective strategy. To facilitate this assessment, various qualitative, semi-quantitative and quantitative techniques of fire risk assessment, already developed, are critically reviewed in this book and some improvements are suggested. This book is intended to be an expanded version of Part 7: Probabilistic risk assessment, 2003, a Published Document (PD) to British Standard BS 7974: 2001 on the Application of Fire Safety Engineering Principles to the Design of Buildings. Ganapathy Ramachandran and David Charters were co-authors of PD 7974 Part 7. Quantitative Risk Assessment in Fire Safety is essential reading for consultants, academics, fire safety engineers, fire officers, building control officers and students in fire safety engineering. It also provides useful tools for fire protection economists and risk management professionals, including those involved in fire insurance underwriting.

Book Description :

Improvement has been made in both theoretical analyses and fabrication techniques of silicon carbide photovoltaic diodes. A P-I-N junction theory of photodiodes has been developed which includes all carrier transport parameters. This general theory is compared with the simple model developed previously for the explanation of the dependences of the peak response wavelength on the junction depth and temperature. Eight silicon carbide ultraviolet detectors were fabricated. Using improved fabrication techniques these detectors had a lower electrical impedance and higher response than detectors previously fabricated. The feasibility of using aluminum nitride, a high temperature semiconductor with a band gap wider than silicon carbide, in the fabrication of ultraviolet detectors was also studied. The sublimation technique was used to grow small hexagonal crystals about 2mm across, and several epitaxial methods were used to grow single crystal layers of A1N on both SiC and A1N.

Book Description :

Ongoing advances in arson detection tools and techniques increase the importance of scientific evidence in related court proceedings. In order to assemble an airtight case, investigators and forensic scientists need a resource that assists them in properly conducting the chemical analysis and interpretation of physical evidence found at scenes of suspected arson. Analysis and Interpretation of Fire Scene Evidence introduces the techniques that determine the presence of ignitable liquid residues (ILRs) at fire scenes. It bridges the disciplines of investigation and forensic chemistry, enabling effective communication during critical periods of evidence detection, collection, packaging, and transport. The initial chapters are written from an investigator's perspective, allowing forensic specialists to understand fire dynamics, ignition, heat transfer, and investigations. Later chapters include a comparison of the use of canines versus new detection techniques, and an examination of laboratory facilities, equipment, and procedures that are essential to organizing a new lab or upgrading an existing one. By detailing the methods used to identify potential evidence at the scene of suspected arson fires, this volume also benefits attorneys and judges in preparing for prosecution and defense of arson cases.
