Description

What will I learn?
Key pieces of legislation along with methods for identification and quantification of hazard and risk as well the strategic approaches to fire safety design will be reviewed. The engineering design of specific fire safety systems such as: means of escape, detection and warning, emergency lighting, smoke control and fire extinguishing will be presented and the main sources of more detailed information and guidance will be identified and reviewed. By necessity the course concentrates mainly on buildings; however, the principles presented are applicable to other systems.You’ll also work through example calculations and design problems.

How will I benefit?
The course will give you a structured, organised and comprehensive framework for fire safety and building fire protection design. On completion of the course you should be in a position to make a significant contribution in the design of appropriate fire safety systems for a fairly complex building or structure. A full copy of the Building Regulations, Approved Document B will also be provided if you attend the first day of the course.

This course also forms part of an MSc Masters programme (full time or part time) in Fire and Explosion Engineering.
