Abstract
The concept of weapon-induced fires on board ships (mainly warships) is introduced in a comprehensive manner. The analysis is based on experiences from military and civilian shipping, statistics, experimental
work and literature on the subject. Events following a weapon-induced fire are outlined in a qualitative manner and key hazards and measures of protection and their effects are recognised and discussed. Finally,
a few methods and computer codes to assess overall vulnerability of ships are outlined and a few examples of on board fires are given.
