Industrial Fire Engineering

Industrial Fire Engineering is the application of engineering principles from a multiple of engineering and science disciplines including mechanical, electrical, structural, chemical, civil and human behaviour in emergency situations.

The primary objectives of fire engineering is to ensure designs, management systems and protection systems are optimized to save life, protect property and protect the environment within the specific stakeholder and project constraints.

In order to do this one must fully understand the inherent fire risks of their design, building or facility. This is done through the application of engineering principles, standards and codes and expert judgment based on scientific studies of the fire phenomenon, how fire affects the natural and built environment and how people react in emergencies.
