Summary

To purchase the text with a Resource Central Access Code Card, please use ISBN: 0-13-295620-9 Forensic Fire Scene Reconstruction,Third Edition, describes and illustrates a new systematic approach for reconstructing fire scenes, applying the principles of fire protection engineering along with those of forensic science and behavioral science. Modern fire investigation topics are covered, including comprehensive documentation, hypothesis testing, and defensible reconstruction of the events leading up to the fire and its final results. Delving deep into forensic fire engineering, Forensic Fire Scene Reconstruction covers engineering calculations, fire modeling and also features several exhaustive case studies which leverage the current technology that is explained in depth throughout the text. Several specialized topic areas are also covered, including use of the drone aircraft, forensic and panoramic photography, computer modeling as well as an advanced discussion of tenability. Using historical fire cases and realistic case examples, the authors examine the newest lessons learned and insight into the ignition, growth, development, and outcome of those fires. All documentation in the case examples follows or exceeds the methodology set forth by the NFPA inNFPA 921-Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigationsand its companion standardNFPA 1033-Standard for Professional Qualifications for Fire Investigator, 2009 Edition, andKirk's Fire Investigation ,Seventh Edition.
