|It is imperative for a structural engineer to be aware of the basic knowledge and design code in fire safety design, especially the methodology for structural fire design using simple general-purpose finite element program such as Abaqus or ANSYS.
In this talk, Dr Feng Fu will have a detailed discussion fire safety design such as compartmentation, evacuation route design of the old tower blocks. In the meantime, the basic knowledge for structural fire design and correspondent design guidelines will be introduced. The modelling technique for fire analysis such as CFD, Zone model and Finite Element analysis will be introduced, pertinent software such as OZONE, Abaqus and ANSYS will be introduced. In this talk, Dr Feng Fu will also introduce some latest fire safety design strategy used in the new project such as Burj Khalifa.
