Fire Investigation.

Ignition Source Anything that provides heat, spark or flame sufficient to cause combustion/explosion..
Flame A hot glowing body of ignited gas that is generated by something on fire.
Pyrolysis Decomposition or transformation of a compound caused by heat
Heat of Combustion the energy released as heat when a compound undergoes complete combustion with oxygen under standard conditions
Flash Point The lowest temperature at which the vapor of a combustible liquid can be made to ignite momentarily in air
Fire Point the temperature at which it will continue to burn for at least 5 seconds after ignition by an open flame.
Auto-Ignition Temperature the lowest temperature at which it will spontaneously ignite in a normal atmosphere without an external source of ignition
Limits of Flammability the conditions under which a mixture of a flammable material and air may catch fire or explode. If you have too much fuel it wont catch fire, if you have too much oxygen it will not catch fire either.
Heat Release Rate Rate that describes the heat available per square foot of heat-absorbing surface in the furnace or per cubic foot of volume.
Toxic Fumes any smokelike or vaporous exhalation from matter or substances, especially of an odorous or harmful nature
Smouldering Combustion to burn without flame; undergo slow or suppressed combustion.
Glowing Combustion A reaction between oxygen or an oxidizer and the surface of a solid fuel so that there is emission of heat and light without a flame.
Self Heating Fire It is a fire where the fuel produces its own heat enabling it to catch fire.
Self Ignition To become ignited without flame or spark
Fuel Controlled Combustion A fire in which the heat release rate and growth rate are controlled by the characteristics of the fuel
Ventilation Controlled Combustion A fire in which the heat release rate or growth is controlled by the amount of air available to the fire
