At the end of the course, the student will know the basic principles of the engineering approach to fire safety with particular reference to the fire resistance of structures. It will also have to acquire:
- Knowledge of numerical codes used in fire safety design on the basis of the engineering approach;
- Knowledge of structural fire resistance design principles;
- Knowledge of regulatory guidelines for the their calculation;
- Knowledge of constructive details and fire protection systems.
Skills: Students will have to be able to face a design study through the use of the engineering approach to fire safety and in particular through the use of numericall codes acknowledged in this field. It will have the ability to choose, arrange, and overlay the various elements for structural reinforced concrete, steel, masonry and wood.
Autonomy of judgment: The student must possess the tools to critically evaluate design choices in the field of fire safety engineering. The student should be able to calculate the fire resistanc of structural elements and choose the appropriate methods of protection. Communication skills: During the course student will refine the language property with specific reference to the specific technical terminology to communicate effectively a project.
The student must acquire the ability to solve problems and to face the most suitable design options even the ones not considered
during the course. Students will also be able to consult the main Bibliographic references of the sector.
