ECCG President's Viewpoint

Fire safety engineering is becoming a natural part of the European building process, many countries have permitted a performance-based design approach in their specific national building codes, this was a necessary step as it was shown that strict code compliant approach is in many cases was not sufficient. This evolution in the building process requires educated professionals with specific knowledge regarding fire safety. Read more....

Professional Recognition for Fire Safety Engineering in Europe 

By Michael Strömgren and
Robert Jönsson, FSFPE

This article presents a current snapshot on the state of recognition for fire safety engineering professionals in Europe. It articulates a set of initiatives intended to help gain a common understanding of qualifications, educational requirements and further advance recognition of fire safety engineering within Europe. Moreover, this article is based on the White Paper on the Professional Recognition of Fire Safety Engineering, which was published by the SFPE European Chapters Coordination Group (ECCG).

The Complexity of Smoke Control Design, Theory and Practice

By Gabriele Vigne

Smoke management in atria and large-volume spaces poses separate and distinct challenges from well-compartmented spaces. In particular, smoke control strategies using pressure differences and physical barriers become infeasible. Without physical barriers, smoke propagation is unimpeded, spreading easily throughout the entire space. The tall ceiling heights in many large-volume spaces create additional challenges in terms of substantial quantities of smoke production and delayed detection times.  Read more...
