Call for Papers: Symposium Safety Design – Structural Fire Engineering

Symposium Safety Design – Structural Fire Engineering
24th september 2024 as a physical meeting

For the tenth time researchers and users meet in Braunschweig to exchange ideas on the latest developments on the topic of structural fire engineering – Eurocode design. The symposium is an effectively scientific supplement to the Braunschweiger Brandschutz-Tage following directly.
It distinguishes itself that 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 experimental investigations, development of new models and research in the field of material properties, the focus of the event should be the application of structural fire engineering.

The symposium 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 (about 1 page) by email to until 17th may 2024. The contributions are accepted in German or English language.
