Fire dynamics and fire chemistry experiments at DTU FireLab

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The Fire Group at DTU Civil Engineering teaches the topics fire dynamics and fire chemistry on a master level and as life-long learning (LLL) courses, through our part time master education program “Master in Fire Safety”. The theoretical classroom lectures are aligned with practical fire lab exercises, to deepen the understanding of the basic fire phenomena. DTU FireLab developed several experiments to determine some material key parameters important for fire safety engineering and fire risk assessment. These experiments include, but are not limited to, oxygen depletion calorimetry, mass loss cone calorimetry, oxygen bomb calorimetry, time to ignition measurements and flame spread experiments. The students will understand the practical side of the fire dynamics and fire chemistry, and will be better to relate theoretical material properties to real fire behaviour.
