Workshop Fire Safety Design – Call for Papers 2016

Please note!
The submission deadline for 2016 has expired.

For the third time researchers and users meet in Braunschweig to exchange ideas on the latest developments on the topic of structural fire engineering – Eurocode design. The workshop is an effectively scientific supplement to the Braunschweiger Brandschutz-Tage following directly. As last year, scientists, especially young researchers but also engineers of structural design and fire protection with practical experience in structural fire engineering and numerical simulations will be discussing current problems of the structural fire engineering. In addition to scientific issues, such as the development of new models and research in the field of material properties, the focus of the event should be the performance of structural fire engineering – Eurocode design recently established as an approved method by the building authorities.

The workshop will provide an opportunity especially to present the following topics to discuss and exchange ideas:

  • Fire scenarios and design fires
  • Numerical simulation of fire impact on components and structures
  • Numerical simulation of the thermal behaviour as well as the structural and deformation behaviour of components exposed to fire
  • High temperature material properties
  • Overall structural behaviour under fire exposure
  • Validation and verification
  • Risk methods and safety concepts
  • Application examples of structural fire engineering

Please send an abstract by email to until 15 May 2016. The Contributions are accepted in German or English language.
