Whilst traditional methods in structural fire engineering tend to assume homogeneous conditions, this is not always the case. In an attempt to combat these often unrealistic assumptions. the concept of travelling fires has been developed.
In this webinar, Professor Rein will define travelling fires, provide an overview of the concept and explain their role in structural fire engineering. He will direct the audience to the open-access resources and literature to make the necessary calculations.
Guillermo is Professor of Fire Science at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Imperial College London and Editor-in-Chief of the journal Fire Technology.
His research is centred on heat transfer, combustion and fire. The purpose of his work is to reduce the worldwide burden of accidental fires and protect people, their property, and the environment. His research portfolio is ample, but over the last 15 years he is best known in three areas: 1) how polymers and wood ignite so we can avoid fires from starting; 2) how engineers can design better structures that resist fire; and 3) how wildfires spread and how to fight them.
He leads the research group Imperial Hazelab, which currently counts with 3 postdocs and 12 PhD students. The group is funded by a range of sponsors, most notably Arup, BASF, EPSRC, and the European Research Council (2015 Consolidator Grant).
Professor Rein of Imperial College London has been commissioned, via Imperial Consultants, to provide his independent opinion for this webinar on Travelling Fires.
Attendance certificates are available on request after the completion of the webinar.
The format of this event will be a webinar using "Zoom Webinars".
There will be opportunity to interact with the lecturer throughout the session, both though allocated Q&A sessions, or leaving text based questions throughout the presentation which the lecturer will be able to answer at convenient opportunities.
