The aim of this book is to help provide a deeper understanding of how fi re behaves during enclosure fi res. It focuses on understanding the processes involved in an enclosure fi re. The main purpose, however, is not to look at how to actually fi ght this type of fi re, by using smoke venting or applying a particular extinguishing medium, for instance, even though appropriate actions like these will be discussed in some sections. When discussing fi refi ghting measures, reference will be made instead to relevant manuals dealing with smoke venting and extinguishing media.
