Trends in Fire Protection Engineering: Challenges of Today and Tomorrow

Presented by Guillermo Rein, PhD, Reader in Thermal Energy, Department of Mechanical Engineering of Imperial College and Editor-in-Chief of the journal Fire Technology

In this presentation, I will provide an overview of the challenges and global trends impacting Fire Protection Engineering (FPE). I will focus on the most important drivers of change, and on the FPE systems being changed. To do so, I asked fire engineering experts to name and rank current trends and then I will elaborate on these trends. I reached out to the current Board and previous Board of Fire Technology. Fire Technology is the research journal of SFPE (in association with NFPA and Springer Nature) publishing research on the full range of fire hazards since 1965. 72 experts replied with a mix background Industry/Academia of 50/50% and from a wide range of FPE sectors. The results show that FPE is fundamental to society; that it is a rapidly evolving field where systems are changing, creating opportunities and challenges. The drivers for these changes are diverse because FPE is a broad engineering discipline. Our engineers are at the forefront of technology and innovation, and it is exciting and dynamics years ahead.
