About the book

This publication aims to propose a cross-sectional review, from the architectural point of view, of solutions and hypotheses of fire management for the present and the future attending to questions such as:

- Complexity. Buildings have become man-inhabited spaces with an ever-increasing technological burden, as it happens with the automobile and aeronautical industries. Increasingly connected homes, hospitals, taller buildings or data processing centers are just some of the challenges faced by architects and engineers, in a future in which multi-purpose buildings will be increasingly common (combining housing, work and leisure for example), and which will foreseeably also be used in other ways as the 2020 pandemic has shown. In these scenarios, will the compartmentalization and evacuation be carried out as before or will be necessary new solutions to new challenges?

- Disruptive technologies. In the coming years, the implementation of technologies such as hydrogen fuel cells, fast-charging stations for electric vehicles, polygeneration of energy, the use of second-life electric batteries in buildings to accumulate energy or the resolution of constructive and structural solutions with 3D printing. In this panorama, what will be the answers that those responsible for fire safety will give?

In addition, concepts such as artificial intelligence, technology transfer, biomimicry, stigmergy, or the use of recycled and recyclable materials whose behavior in the face of fire is unknown, will undoubtedly also condition the parameters and requirements of the industry of the protection against fire.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Mia Miskulin

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
