Unique, innovative research on all fire hazards and how to prevent/protect from them including:
- Flammability and fire dynamics research including pyrolysis, flame heat transfer, fire propagation, growth and extinction.
- Fire protection research is focused on water-based fire suppression, large-scale fire testing and practical solutions to specific fire protection problems.
- Material reactivity includes experimental and numerical studies of gaseous and dust explosions, evaluation of blast waves and effects of turbulence and instabilities on flame propagation.
An internal open source fire modeling collaboration resulting in a modern research tool that complements testing of large-scale industrial fires and engineering water-based fire protection.
