FPE S521: Egress Analysis and Design

Life safety from fire is the paramount objective of Fire Protection Engineering. Detailed understanding of how fire safety regulations have traditionally addressed life safety in buildings as well as an introduction to performance-based approaches to human behavior in fire, building evacuation timing and tenability analysis. Upon completing this course, students will be able to work with other building design professionals to help them determine if their building designs are providing the expected levels of life safety from fire.

FPE S501: Fundamental Thermal Sciences

Fundamental understanding of the thermal sciences that serve as the foundation for the modern practice of Fire Protection Engineering. The thermal sciences include fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat and mass transfer. An understanding of fluid mechanics is essential for the design of fire suppression systems, while an understanding of all the thermal sciences is essential for the analysis of fire dynamics, flammability of materials and enclosure fire modeling. Students without a background in the thermal sciences are required to take this course, while students with such a background may want to take this course to refresh and update their understanding of these important subjects.
