Join this free-to-attend evening event, part of the Global Engineering Congress.
Despite the apparent success of the engineering community at mitigating structural collapses in fires, the fire ‘resilience' of designs is rarely considered. Instead, the focus tends to be on direct life-safety.
Improper, unthinking, or incompetent application of ‘fire resistance’ testing and ratings represents a serious threat to the fire resilience of the built environment.
At this lecture, Professor Luke Bisby will present examples, showing how current structural fire engineering practice fails to necessarily deliver resilient buildings.
The talk will conclude by highlighting opportunities to address these shortcomings in the future.
The lecture will be followed by Q&A session. Delegates will also have opportunity to network and continue the discussions in the ICE Café Bar.
The Global Engineering Congress is bringing together the worldwide engineering community to look at how we can trigger real change and deliver the outcomes specified by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The programme offers 5 full days of multi-streamed content. 2,000-plus engineers will take part in a practical programme designed to produce answers that can improve the lives of millions around the world. Don’t miss your chance to take part.
Luke is the Chair of Fire and Structures within the School of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh, where he has worked since 2008. He is a graduate of McGill and Queen’s Universities, both in Canada, and author of more than 170 peer reviewed technical publications in areas related to structural design for fire safety, structural strengthening and rehabilitation, fire safety engineering, and engineering education.
He is a member of the UK Standing Committee on Structural Safety (SCOSS) and Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety (CROSS), and is involved as an advisor or contributor to government, technical bodies, and building and fire code committees in the UK and internationally.
