AbstractRadiation is the mode of heat transfer that should be considered when calculating how far apart buildings should be in order to reduce to an acceptable level the probability that fire in one will spread to another. The theory on which the separation should be derived is outlined. The " gray radiator" concept is discussed, together with another basis of calculation. Examples are given of how this operates.
