Enhance life safety and property protection using the most current methods for determining flashover risks in NFPA 555.
With the growing application of equivalency concepts and performance-based designs, ensuring fire safety by evaluating the potential for room flashover, or full involvement during a fire, becomes an increasingly important task for the engineer and authority having jurisdiction.
The 2013 NFPA 555: Guide on Methods for Evaluating Potential for Room Flashover contains up-to-date references throughout the document and provides the latest methods for evaluating the potential for room flashover from fire involving the contents, furnishings, and interior finish of a room.
