Workshop – An overview of Fire and Evacuation Modelling

Leading experts will discuss the latest in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling of fires, human behaviour and evacuation, simulation of the dispersion of hazardous materials (fire, and explosions) review of fire zone models and explore the role of fire modelling in a Building Fire Safety Case, as well as a tour of the Fire, Oil and Gas Laboratory at UCLAN.

Lunch and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
