On completion of this course, participants should be able to apply general combustion and engineering principles to fires, should know the parameters that influence flame spread and steady burning and should be able to quantify the burning rate in compartment fires, predict the rate of development of the fire, the onset of flashover, and appreciate the application of these concepts to fire protection design. They should also understand the factors influencing smoke toxicity and movement.
The participants will also be made aware of the predictive tools that are available and should become familiar with the application and use of such tools, through "hands-on" practice.
The 2014 programme and online booking will be available approximately 3 months prior to the course dates. You can however view the 2013 course details in the left hand column.
Anybody who wishes / needs to gain a comprehensive, scientifically based analysis and engineering quantification tools, of fire development and consequence assessment in industrial and residential scenarios. This could include those involved in the design and operation of buildings and chemical plant (architects, civil engineers, chemical engineers), and in the design of protection systems (passive and active system developers, manufacturers, installers), those responsible for building and plant safety on a day to day basis, regulators and advisors (HSE, Fire Service, Home Office, Local Authorities, Building Control Offices, Consultants, Insurers) and fire-fighting professionals. Additionally, young researchers may find this course very useful.
This course also forms part of an MSc Masters programme (full time or part time) in Fire and Explosion Engineering.
