Knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course the student will learn the basic principles of the engineering approach applied to fire safety design.
He must also acquire knowledge of
numerical codes used in fire safety design fire on the basis of the engineering approach.
Applying knowledge and understanding:
The student will be able to deal with a design study case using the
engineering approach to fire safety and in particular to the use of
numerical codes accredited in this field.
By the end of the course the student will have the tools to critically evaluate the design choices in the field of fire safety design.
Communication skills:Through the frontal lessons and the assistance of the teacher, the student acquires the specific vocabulary inherent to fire safety engineering. The student must possess the ability to present clearly the procedure
adopted in the assessment of the fire safety of a compartment on the
basis of the engineering approach including the use of codes of
simulation / visualization of the fire dynamics.
Learning skills: The student who has attended the course will be able to deepen his knowledge of fire safety engineering through the autonomous consultation of national and international regulations, specialized books, scientific or divulgative journals, even outside the topics explained during lectures, also in view of the entrance in a job environment or in a third level course.
