    The techniques, models, and research results in STP 882 provide engineering approaches for predicting the course of fire, the response of fire safety features, and the impact on people and property. The result is a scientific foundation for designing fire safety measures. Specific subject include: fire risk, performance standards, fire modeling, fire safety of structures, flame spread, the smoke problem, sprinklering and human aspects of fires.
