The Fire Research Group (formerly known as Centre for Environmental Safety and Risk Engineering, CESARE) carries out research on the spread of smoke and fire in buildings as well as in wildland, fire extinguishment, and the way structures and materials respond to fire.
Our research staff have experience in these areas:
- fire dynamics
- structural behaviour and design
- heat transfer and materials behaviour
- human behaviour in fire, risk assessment
- suppression and detection systems
- fire retardance
- fire modelling.
