  • Hello from Russia!

    My name is Alexander Popugaev, I'm 35 years old. I'm from the city of Penza, Russian Federation.

    I spent 15 years working in the field of fire research. I have the right to self-production expertise on fire. That is, with explaining the place of fire, as well as its causes. I am a certified public expert. I have several different fire examinations of production certificates.

    I work in the system of specialized institutions of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, which carried out such activities.

    My position is called - the chief of sector of legal expertise, that is, my hands are all very large and resonance fires that occur on the territory of the Penza region (such as yours Michigan or Ohio).

    I would like to carry with you an exchange of experience in the study of fires, as well as lead a normal conversation on various topics (normal communication). That is, communication between colleagues from different countries, if of course you're interested! Sorry for my english, I'm still with the electronic translator))

    Best regards!

    I am pleased to share experience on the fire, there are many practical developments, as well as various literature on the study of fires, it's all in Russian truth))) But I think - it's not a big problem.

    My email address: [email protected].

      Hello everyone!
      Nearly 70 views of the theme and no comments))
      I think I got it wrong, maybe some accepted my proposal with connotation dissemination of official information. However, I just wanted to know how the process of describing the fires in the United States or in Canada.
      For example, in Russia in establishing the causes of fires are considered versions of eight groups.


      • #4
        Everything else is only one version of a fire from wiring faults will still divided at least into three subsections.
        1. shorting
        2. a large contact resistance
        3. overcurrent


        • #5
          Further, for example, could lead to a vehicle fire pictures. Specify the location of the fire and flame propagation path for vehicles.

          Is not interesting how investigating fires in Russia?))


          • #6
            Total as I mentioned eight groups of versions of fire:
            1. The discharge of atmospheric electricity (thunder, lightning)
            2. refraction and focusing the sun's rays
            3. The spontaneous combustion of substances and materials
            4. The heat-generating units (furnaces, fireplaces)
            5. The processes and equipment (welding)
            6. Low-power sources of ignition (cigarettes)
            7. The sources of high power ignition (matches, torches, lighters)
            8. The wiring and electrical equipment.


            • #7
              Of all the versions of a fire, we consider each time writing the examination or investigation. As it happens in the US or Canada? share if it will not be difficult)))

                Thanks for the answer!
                whether in the US study of fires and the disposition of them (legal qualification, followed by involvement of the perpetrator) is engaged in one and the same person?
                in Russia are two different officials:
                - The investigator determines that a person is guilty of a fire;
                - The expert who sets the cause of the fire.

                in this case, the cause of the fire in Russia from the point of view of an expert, it is the technical side of the fire cause. that is, the task of the expert to establish the source of ignition mechanism of entering into the seat of fire.


                • #9
                  and whether there is in this forum just the same fire experts? I would like to just talk to them in detail)
                  or providing a link to the appropriate forum.
