How can we prevent and control fire disasters?

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Recent events worldwide have shown the importance of fire safety. A huge number of people lost their lives in this week's wildfires in Greece which followed the tragic events last year at the Grenfell Tower in London and huge forest fires in California, Portugal and Spain.

Over the years, the pursuit for the control of fire has become the holy grail of fire safety engineering. In terms of safety management, wildfires and building fires are the two main threats to be addressed.
