Structural Design Fire Safety

College of Engineering
CIV
Structural analysis and design for fire safety applying prescriptive and performance based design methods. Concepts include fire and heat, room fire, fire severity, thermal analysis, fire resistance, and design for design fire exposure. Engineering principles are applied from mechanics and heat transfer as well as analysis of results from fundamental experiments and simulations. Applications of thermal/structural software are also considered.
