Abstract:

The NIST Annual Conference on Fire Research has long been the prime forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest advances in the science of fire and the engineering of fire safety. This year's conference has been expanded to include all fire research performed within Federal laboratories or sponsored by Federal agencies, as well as by laboratories around the world.
