This program is an intensive, interactive 3-day training program that combines lectures with bench scale experiments to illustrate and reinforce the concepts and theories presented during the program. The experiments will be conducted in a small group format and group results will be summarised and discussed at the end of each session. The program outline includes:
- introduction to the focus and performance objectives of the program
Science of Maths/Basic Algebra for the Fire Investigator:
this session focuses on the relationship of maths to fire investigation and discusses basic algebra and units
this session will discuss the concepts and definitions of energy and heat transfer as it relates to fire development
Heat Transfer Field Experiments
this session will discuss the various processes of combustion and the process of flame formation
Combustion Field Experiments
this session will focus on the concepts of heat release rate, ignition and surface flame spread
Fire Growth Experiments
this session discusses the dynamics of fire plumes and plume behaviour in the fire environment
Fire Plume Field Experiments
Enclosure Fire Dynamics
this session focuses on the dynamics of fire behaviour in an enclosure including fire development, flashover, ventilation flows and the influence of smoke movement.
Enclosure Fire Field Experiments
At the end of the course students may challenge and pass a summative examination. All students that complete the course will be awarded 22.5 CPD hours by the IFE.
This program includes presentations and experiments on the following topics:
- Science of Maths/General Algebra
- Heat Transfer
- Fire Growth
- Fire Plumes
- Enclosure Fire Dynamics
Fire investigators who want to add fire dynamic concepts & calculations to their tool kit.
Fire Engineers who need new knowledge in the theory of fire behaviour.
Students studying fire science, fire protection engineering or forensic fire investigation and who want a better understanding of the behaviour of fire in the real world environment
