Codes Flammability. For existing buildings, fire codes focus on maintaining the occupancies as originally intended. In other words, if a portion of a building were designed as an apartment, one could not suddenly load it with flammable liquids and turn it into a gas storage facility, because the fire load and smoke development in that one apartment would be so immense as to overtax . In Flammable Australia: Fire Regimes, Biodiversity and Ecosystems in a Changing World, leading researchers in fire ecology and management discuss how fire regimes have shaped and will continue to shape the distribution and abundance of Australia's highly diverse plants and animals. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of this complex science, in the context of one of the world’s most flammable continents. Please note: despite the similarities of the title to the book Flammable Australia from Cambridge University Press with the same editors, this is a new book with new content. Contents.
