ECCG President's Viewpoint

This is the second issue of SFPE Europe magazine. I’m happy to say that we managed to keep on track and continue the hard work after the first issue. From now on I am certain that it will be easier for us to continue with this great initiative.

In this issue we have a short recap from our first SFPE Europe conference that was held in Copenhagen earlier this year.  Read more...

A Swedish Best Practice Guideline for Proper Use of CFD-Models With ASET Analysis

By Daniel Rosberg and Johan Norén

In Sweden there are performance-based regulations when constructing a building. In a performance-based code, compliance with fire safety regulations can be demonstrated in two ways: either by constructing the building in accordance with pre-accepted solutions (defined by the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning), or by means of fire safety engineering methods proving that the fire safety is satisfactory according to the societal level of safety.

Fire Safety Engineering: Applications for Water-Based Fire Control and Suppression Modelling

By Grégoire Pianet, Alexandre Jenft and Armelle Muller

Presently, many applications of computational science to fire safety engineering (FSE) are directed at heat and smoke propagation in buildings and thermal stress on structures, as well as the control of each by means of specific fire protection systems (smoke control systems, fire walls, smoke curtains, etc.).  Read more...

 
 
 
 

First SFPE Europe Conference on Fire Safety Engineering Draws Great Attendance, Feedback

On 4-5 June 2015, more than 150 attended SFPE’s first European Conference on Fire Safety Engineering in Copenhagen, Denmark. The event marked the first of what SFPE hopes will become a regular event, bringing together fire engineers and fire safety engineers to network, exchange ideas and further the advancement of fire safety engineering in Europe. The call for abstracts for the event yielded a number of quality submissions spanning a wide range of topics, culminating in a strong technical program that addressed the science and practice of fire safety engineering, as well as the tools and methods used by fire safety engineers in Europe and across the globe.
