There is no doubt that fire safety engineering is an emerging new engineering discipline with a sound and developing scientific and research base. Fire safety engineering is becoming more mature and it is now possible to be a chartered fire safety engineer. There is also a growing commercial market and a heed for skilled engineers to be involved in a wide range of areas, which include:
1. Fire and smoke prediction
2. Psychology and speed of people movement
3. Means of escape
4. Management for fire safety
5. Performance of structure and construction
6. Appraisal of the performance of structure pre and post a fire event
7. Fire fighting
8. Performance of building services systems

Correspondence on Gas Explosions in Buildings in the UK: Regulations and Risk by Dr. B.R. Ellis and

Dr W.W.L. Chan (F) I congratulate the authors (and thank them!) on their excellent and timely paper, drawing together some 25 years’ statistical data on gas explosions. At last we have a rational basis for reviewing acceptable risk and accidental design pressure!

Andel's Wings and Cotton Reels

Construction work for two new footbridges across the Thames at Charing Cross is about to begin. Pedestrians crossing the river will soon have the benefit of wide, modem walkways and impressive views upstream to the Palace of Westminster and downstream to St Paul’s Cathedral. The bridges are unique and their design and construction present new challenges to engineers, architects and contractors. John Parker

<h4>Stainless Steel in Fire</h4>

Stainless Steel in Fire

Due to their durability, aesthetic appeal and corrosion resistance, the use of stainless steels in construction is continuously increasing. Eurocode 3:Part l.4 covers the design of structural stainless steels and was issued in 1996. There is, however, a shortage of design guidance on the fire resistance of structural stainless steels, and this hinders the materials’ wider use in certain applications. Nancy Badoo
