    Project Details

    Description

    Fire Safety regulations are generally of fairly rigid nature and are often perceived as restrictive to developments in building design and planning. The on-going transition from current prescriptive methods to more advanced performance-based methods in fire safety analysis and assessment of buildings and premises, and the conceivable benefits of the transition, are being studied in a series of M.Sc. thesis projects. Co-operation with Department of Fire Safety Engineering, LTH, Lund University, Sweden.
    Project coordinator and Adviser to M.Sc.thesis projects.
