Fire Engineering. Fire Safety Engineering - the Role of the Structural Engineer

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 Michael Green
