The evolution of light and heat in the combustion of bodies; combustion; state of ignition.
Fuel in a state of combustion, as on a hearth, or in a stove or a furnace.
The burning of a house or town; a conflagration.
Torture by burning; severe trial or affliction.
To subject to intense heat; to bake; to burn in a kiln; as, to fire pottery.
To light up as if by fire; to illuminate.
Combustion evidenced by a flame or glow. Insurance distinguishes between a "hostile" fire (one out of bounds) and "friendly" fire (such as that contained within the firebox of a stove).
A chemical reaction between oxygen and a combustible material where rapid oxidation results in the release of heat, light, flame and/or smoke.
This is a flame that is produced over a stationary fuel source such as a liquid hydrocarbon pool or solid such as wood.
To heat at high temperatures and harden a ceramic or clay in a kiln.
The process of rapid oxidation that generally produces both heat and light. Also, referred to as combustion.
to process by applying heat; baked in a hot oven or kiln; high firing (1200 - 1400 C) is used for porcelain, moderate firing (1200 - 1280 C) is used for stoneware, low firing (800 - 1100 C) for earthenware.
A self-sustaining chemical reaction that can release energy in the form of light and heat.
A chemical reaction that occurs when a combustible material is exposed to oxygen during which rapid oxidation results in the release of heat, light, flame, and/or smoke.
The heating of the clay in a kiln at high temperature until it is dry and hard. This turns clay into pottery.
a chemical reaction that releases heat
The word used to refer to the process of heatig the clay in a kiln to a temperature high enough to render it insoluable in water and hot enough to melt glaze. Traditionally, the kiln used a burning fuel; wood, dung, coal or gas; intense fire was used. The term fire is used today for electric kilns that do not actually employ a burning fuel.
To heat a clay object in a kiln to a specific temperature. Firebrick - An insulation brick used to hold the heat in the kiln and withstand high temperatures.
One of the perils specified in the Perils Clause in an insurance policy. It includes not only direct damage by flames, but also indirect damage incurred from smoke, or damage from water or chemicals used to extinguish the fire. The definition does not extend to cover spontaneous combustion.
The light and heat manifested by the rapid oxidation of combustible materials. A flame may be manifested but is not required.
the event of something burning (often destructive); "they lost everything in the fire"
the process of combustion of inflammable materials producing heat and light and (often) smoke; "fire was one of our ancestors' first discoveries"
a fireplace in which a fire is burning; "they sat by the fire and talked"
bake in a kiln so as to harden; "fire pottery"
a complex chemical process that converts on combination of substances into a different combination of substances and , at the same time, releases energy in the forms of light and heat
an omen of impending trouble if it burned you
a rapid oxidation process of combustible gases ejected from a fuel
a serious danger, not a joke and for police officers to say "burn baby burn", it's just not in good taste
a well understood chemical reaction between oxygen and the combustible material
The heat treating process in which a ceramic coating is fused to a substrate.
To apply heat to harden pottery.
to apply heat to harden clay
Doubtless connected with what occurred at Pentecost, when cloven tongues of fire rested on each believer (Acts 2:3), the word fire has been used in a significant number of ways to describe revival. Notice that each of these expressions conveys something distinct and significant: "The Baptism of Fire," "Fire From Heaven," "Fire on the Earth," and "Flames of Fire." Persons touched by revival have been spoken of as "Ablaze for God," and in reporting the coming of Christ among His people it has often been said: "The Fire Fell." Clearly, the purging that occurs during seasons of revival is most excellently represented by this term fire.
This zone type is used for any smoke or heat detectors. When activated it will cause a full alarm condition, whether the system is set or un-set. One major benefit of using this zone type is that it changes the noise the external sounder produces, into a pulsed sound. This should alert anyone nearby that it is not a normal alarm condition.
to bake a piece in a kiln.
the state or process of combustion, or oxidation, in which ignited material combines with oxygen and gives off light, heat, and flame. A source of ignition (heat), oxygen, and fuel is required for a fire to burn.
Usually an unintended or undesired burning; rapid oxidation of combustible materials resulting in light and heat. The types of fires with which firefighters are concerned may be termed "unfriendly" as opposed to hearth fires or furnace fires.
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. William Butler Yeats
normalized fire resistance that consists in placing a certain surface of material in front of an intense heat and in pursuing the test until spontaneous inflammation of the material. The classification which results from it is a function of duration sold before inflammation and takes into account the speed of propagation of the flame (but not emanations of poison gases).
A rapid oxidation process with the evolution of light and heat in varying intensities.
a term used in ceramics; to heat the clay in a kiln at a very high temperature until it is dry and hard and becomes pottery.
Fire is the term used to describe the red staining associated with the formation of copper oxide on or near the surface of material. Fire-free refers to material produced under controlled conditions to prevent this happening i.e., annealed under a protective atmosphere. Fire stain can also be minimised in subsequent heating and soldering operations by using a protective covering, CPM supply a product known as Argotect for this purpose.
Combustion manifested in light, flame and heat for useful purposes (known as friendly fire), or for destructive purposes (called hostile fire). Insurance covers a loss only from the latter.
to bake clay in a hot kiln or oven. To harden clay, the temperature must be high enough to fuse the clay particles. High firing (1200Â°â€“1400Â°C) is used for porcelain; moderate firing (1200Â°â€“1280Â°C) is used for stoneware; and low firing (800Â°â€“1100Â°C) is used for earthenware.
Combustion which is rapid enough to produce a flame or glow. A fire, for purposes of Property Insurance, must be "hostile," which means it is not in a place in which it is intended to be. Fires in their proper contained area are called "friendly fires" and are not covered under most basic Property Insurance policies.
In property insurance, "fire" refers to the unintentional or "hostile" occurrences of flame and combustion. Damage caused by fire in your fireplace, for instance, is not covered under your homeowner policy. But if your rug were ignited by a spark from that same fireplace, you would be covered.
(Feu or Incendie) To ignite, to cause burning, the chemical change in combustion producing heat and light. Fire has long been used for the benefit of humans. Fires heat our premises, cook our meals and are used in many manufacturing processes. Such situations are known as "friendly fires." When uncontrolled, fire can be an enemy and can destroy houses, crops, lumber stands, etc. Such fires are known as "hostile fires" and are the subject of insurance.
To heat pots in a kiln to a specific temperature for a specific time.
To expose a substance such as enamel, clay or glass to intense heat, usually in a kiln.
resistive or Fire rated - Applies to materials that are not combustible in the temperatures of ordinary fires and will withstand such fires for at least 1 hour. Drywall used in the garage and party walls are to be fire rated, 5/8", Type X.
the courts have held that fire must be combustion sufficient to produce a spark, flame, or glow, but not an explosion, and must be hostile, as opposed to friendly - i.e., not in the place where it is intended to be, as in a furnace, stove or fireplace, but must be accidental and must be the proximate cause of the damage.
Under fire insurance policies, the term means fire of an “unfriendly” nature, that is, one in a place it ought not to be, such as on the living room rug. Also the term implies burning in the nature of consuming property by flame or glow. Such a definition commonly rules out coverage for mere surface scorch when there has been no clear evidence of damage due to consuming flame or glow.
The rapid oxidation of a combustible material accompanied by the release of energy in the form of heat and light.
A combustion accompanied by a flame or glow, which escapes its normal confines to cause damage.
Fire is a self sustaining oxidation process accompanied by heat and light in the form of a glow or flames. It is commonly used to describe either a fuel in a state of combustion (e.g., a campfire, or a lit fireplace or stove) or a violent, destructive and uncontrolled burning (e.g., in buildings or a wildfire). The discovery of making fire is considered one of the most important elements in the progression of humankind, for it let higher hominids ward off wild animals, cook food, and provide warmth.
