About this Unit
This unit aims to develop an understanding of various types of computational tools used in engineering design of fire safety systems. The fundamentals of control volume, applications of conservations laws in modeling and the form of predictive equations are explained. The content includes evaluations of fire severity, fire resistance levels of various types of building structures and elements. Hand calculation equations, zone models and field models are covered. The limitations of the models in representing the real phenomena are also discussed.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Calculator, PC or laptop.
