Material in one of what is known as "Coffee Break Training" which is released by the National Fire Academy once a week.  The materials are designed to provide stating point for a round table type discussion.  This particular Coffee Break provides definitions for several basic terms and concepts critical to understanding fire dynamics.  This material can be used for presentations involving code enforcement, performance based design, and fire suppression
