The Third Symposium and Workshop on Design for Fire Safety in Buildings and Built Infrastructure
Recent large fires in residential and industrial complexes across the region and nation have triggered a need for education about fire safety in building design, construction and maintenance.
This two-day symposium will focus on the theoretical and practical aspects of engineering fire safety in buildings and built infrastructure. The speakers will initiate an introduction to the concepts of engineering fire safety and will present recent technological advancements. The design of active and passive fire protection systems will be discussed, along with strategies for enhancing their reliability and performance.The first part of the symposium will focus on the design and maintenance of active fire protection systems, including sprinklers, detection and smoke management systems. The latest technological advancements will be highlighted.
The second part of the symposium will focus on the design, behavior and analytical modeling of structural systems under extreme fire conditions and properties of materials at elevated temperatures. Guidelines for enhancing the fire resistance of structural systems will be presented. The latest philosophies in performance-based fire safety design and analysis of structures in fire will be presented along with evidence from real building fires.
