Fire Engineering Training – Fire Dynamics II

As part of his Masters in Fire Protection, Dave Hines completed the above course from Carleton University in Ottawa. The course focused on fire dynamics behaviour in enclosures. Analytical formulas were applied to scenarios to provide a fundamental understanding of the behavior of fires. Fire spread ratings and testing methods were examined as well as flame structure, fuel controlled fires, ventilation controlled fires, toxicity levels, flashover, and fire suppression techniques.
