This updated and expanded third edition continues the theme of the second edition of providing extensive research findings in all types of electrical fires. This book, which was written by electrical engineers, describes in a practical and easy-to-understand manner the patterns of electrical fires which make it easier to determine where an electrical fire started. Specific topics include: (1) the general background and essential elements of fire initiation; (2) codes and standards, testing laboratories approval, non-electrical fires, arc mapping and V-patterns; (3) disassembly of equipment, nameplates, equipment misuse, abuse, and repair; (4) the gathering, preserving, and shipping of evidence, keeping records; (5) common clues, melting points, and insulation degradation; (6) common components, moveable contacts, switches and relays, circuit breakers and panels, conduit joints, heating elements; (7) appliances, wall outlets and switches, light bulbs, reversed polarity; (8) arson, telephones and answering machines, igniters, debris inspection; (9) reports, depositions and trials, report purpose and appearances; (10) fire initiation and spread, space heaters, wires, and other heat-producing mechanisms; (11) fire characteristics and general precautions; (12) electrical systems and grounds, general wiring; (13) photography and camera features; (14) electrical circuits and waves; and (15) electrical power equipment, transformers, generators, rectifiers, and motors. This book is an excellent resource not only for arson investigators but for attorneys, the insurance industry, and manufacturers who are concerned with electron reliability.
