Integrated Fire Engineering and Response

COST action network number TU0904 in domain Transport and Urban Development

Training School   on 12-15 March 2013

Advanced Fire Engineering in Practice - Software Tools 

The Training School is intended to broaden the research background of the participants, firstly by introducing them to the views of some leading researchers and practitioners on topics of fire dynamics and heat transfer, structural behaviour and people movement, and then by challenging them to understand and use different software modelling tools. Through interchange of this information, as well presenting their work on benchmark studies or their own research, the COST TU0904 Action will play a major part in the formation of the next generation of leaders in fire engineering research and practice across Europe.
