Introduction into scientific work methods-a necessity when performance-based codes are introduced

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


The introduction of performance-based codes in Denmark in 2004 requires new competences from people working with different aspects of fire safety in the industry and the public sector. This abstract presents an attempt in reducing problems with handling and analysing the mathematical methods and CFD models when applying performance-based codes. This is done within the educational program "Master of Fire Safety Engineering" at the department of Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark. It was found that the students had general problems with academic methods. Therefore, a new educational moment is introduced as a result of this investigation. The course is positioned in the program prior the work with the final project. In the course a mini project is worked out, in which the students provides extra training in academic methods.
