073 - Smoke control in shopping malls - uncommon aspects that make or break the system

Oct. 26, 2022

Long before I started the podcast, my bread and butter was to find clever ways to remove smoke from shopping malls. Actually, I like to believe I was pretty good at the job, given the fact some of the biggest projects in Eas…

071 - Risk as a tool for thinking with Ruben van Coile

Oct. 12, 2022

When thinking about 'risk' do you view it as a tool? I usually thought about it as a concept or maybe as a measure of 'how safe my building is?', but I have not really appreciated how beneficial it might be when used in such…

067 - Next-gen smoke control experimental facility and a digital twin with Grzegorz Krajewski

Sept. 14, 2022

We've felt a bit awkward about how FSE handles smoke control in corridors. If you look closely into common practices, they rarely do include impressive engineering - more often you see some 'tips and tricks' that make the CF…

065 - Understanding mesh sensitivity and model uncertainties with Jason Floyd

Aug. 31, 2022

Will a higher resolution mesh make my CFD more accurate? That is a harmless question, and most of us would tend toward 'I guess yeah'. But let us try and unpack this. Into atoms! What does higher resolution mean? How exactly…

062 - BIM (not only for fire) with Peter Thompson and Rino Lovreglio

Aug. 10, 2022

It does not matter if you hate or love BIM, does not matter if you use it daily or have no idea what it is... Building Information Modelling will be an important part of our engineering future and we better get used to it. …

056 - Performance Based Fire Protection Engineer with David Stacy

June 29, 2022

How does being a volunteer firefighter improve your abilities to do Performance-Based Design (PBD) and how your knowledge in PBD may translate to firefighting? That is not a question you can ask to every fire protection engi…

047 - Effective pressurization of compartments with Grzegorz Sypek

April 20, 2022

Pressurization is a common strategy for protecting spaces against the infiltration of smoke. However, the solution has a kind-of bad press as "not-working" or "incapable to meet its design goals". We know, that the systems a…

045 - Foundations of fire safety with Ruben van Coile and Danny Hopkin

April 6, 2022

How does one decide when a building is fire safe? That is a real hell of a question to answer! Is it when no harm can occur? But such a condition can never be fulfilled... there is always a meteor waiting around the corner t…

039 - The (near) future of modelling with a tool developer Bryan Klein

Feb. 23, 2022

What does the future hold? Probably no one knows. But what happens in near future with some of the most popular tools used by the FSE community? That is a great question to a tool developer - Bryan Klein of Thunderhead Engin…

033 - Science, theatre or engineering? Polish take on hot smoke test with Piotr Smardz and Janusz Paliszek

Jan. 12, 2022

Have you ever heard about the hot smoke testing approach? If you had, there is a great chance you have not heard anything positive about it... From our experience, this method is often downplayed as useless, unrealistic and …

030 - Visibility Prediction Framework with Lukas Arnold

Dec. 8, 2021

If you ever had anything to do with Fire Safety Engineering, you have most likely touched the visibility in smoke. What's an easier way to explain how bad the conditions are inside of a building than saying how much smoke wa…

028 - Easy entry into the world of AI in fire with MZ Naser

Nov. 24, 2021

Have you ever been fascinated by the capabilities of AI? Did you wonder how the heck can an algorithm beat humans in repetitive tasks? Or make multi-level correlations that we would never be able to figure out? I was as well…

027 - Travelling fires with Guillermo Rein

Nov. 17, 2021

If you have ever learned about the compartment fire dynamics framework, have tried zone modelling or any kind of fire modelling, you have probably noticed that as the compartments get bigger, the less uniform conditions insi…

023 - Risk assessment with Maximum Allowable Damage with Jaime Cadena Gomez and David Lange

Oct. 20, 2021

Risk as a concept is well established in modern Performance-Based Design in Fire Safety Engineering. However, it comes in many flavours - from a simple calculation of consequences vs probability, through indexing methods and…
