EuroFire 2013 – trends and applications in fire engineering

Published:  12 July, 2013

The next EuroFire conference will be held 9-10 October 2013 at Basle, Switzerland.

The 2013 event will focus on a wide range of topics (education certification, harnessing new technologies and facilitating architectural trends) whilst also emphasising applications and cases studies.

The two-day programme is made up of 26 papers which discuss the latest trends and applications on fire safety engineering and there is plenty of time allocated for visiting the exhibition stands and networking with colleagues.

The Programme Committee have put together a technical programme which they believe is important and interesting for industrial companies and related industries such as the insurance sector to discuss specific issues or general problems and to find appropriate engineering solutions. 

The Conference will open with a session on the global approach of fire safety engineering.  Eminent lecturers from USA and Australia will share their experiences that can be used as a base for education and certification of fire safety engineers in Europe.

A second session will debate the way to measure the qualification of fire safety engineers.   There is now an urgent requirement both within Europe and worldwide to uniformly define the status and qualifications of the fire safety engineer.

The impact of architectural trends will then be evaluated by way of some examples, ranging from road tunnels to super tall buildings.

The downturn in the worldwide economic situation has sharply focused the industry on the cost efficiency of the designs and life cycle analysis.  Risk management, cost benefit analyses and positive balance are the key words in this session.

New technologies as such as Vortex Suppression Systems, sprinkler vacuum technology and the application of fire safety engineering by way of computer simulation or full scale fire tests will be discussed in the closing session of the conference.
