Fire Modeling

College of Engineering
MECH
Focuses on advanced topics in fire dynamics and simulation of pre-flashover and post-flashover conditions. Topics include combustion and compartment fire behavior, burning characteristics of polymers and other sources of fuels, the influence of fire retardants, products of combustion generation, flame spread models, plume models and overall toxicity assessment. Fire hazards generated from fire models are related to the integrity of the structure and probability of failure mechanisms.
