Description

Introduction to heat transfer problems in fire engineering including steady state and transient conduction, convection and radiation. Fundamentals of burning objects from combustion chemistry, ignition, flame spread, flame heights and fire plumes.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course the student should be able to apply the fundamental concepts presented in the course

- analyse the temperature distribution in a solid analytically in 1-D and numerically in 2-D
- Write a 1-dimensional numerical transit heat transfer model
- Develop reasonable estimates of the convection coefficient
- Determine the radiation levels from a burning object
- Understanding when and how an object ignites
- Construct a heat release rate history for a burning object
- Estimate the primary and secondary product from a burning object
- Estimate the temperature and velocity profiles and mass entrainment within a fire plume.

Have a basic understanding of the Fire Dynamic Simulator such that you can use FDS as a virtual laboratory.
