Red flame - Laboratory of Fire Engineering

What we do

Laboratory of Fire Engineering focuses mainly on mathematical modeling of fire, thermal decomposition of solid materials, volatile liquid fuels evaporation, and its applications in fire and safety engineering.

How we do it

Which tools do we use?

We use mathematical models based on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) method.

Models - Laboratory of Fire Engineering

Modeling alone is not enough, where do we get experimental data?

Experiments - Laboratory of Fire Engineering

Why we do it

There are many reasons beside we like it.

Prevention

  • Location of fire safety features in buildings and industrial technologies (detectors, nozzles of stable fire extinguishing equipment).
  • Planning and verifying the functionality of evacuation strategies.
  • Firefighter safety - planning fire tests and drills.
  • CNG vehicles fire safety.
