In any environment, fire is one of the most critical hazards and accurately modelling its behaviour is vital to managing risk.
This seminar will investigate the tools and techniques employed by engineers to model fire in a wide range of sectors and support more accurate analysis and safer design.
Presenters from industry, research and academia will tackle the specific challenges involved, including modelling fires in timber structures, tunnels and other specific scenarios.
Comparisons will be made between probabilistic and deterministic methods with reference made to the uncertainties involved and the fidelity of the models. Attendees will also have the opportunity to put their questions to speaker panels throughout the day and take away best practice and new learnings to address specific technical challenges.
CONFIRMED SPEAKERS INCLUDE:
- Gareth Steele, Principal Fire Engineer, London Fire Brigade
- Benjamin Ralph, Partner, Head of Fire Safety, Foster + Partners
- Jacob Plummer, Nuclear Safety Inspecor, Office for Nuclear Regulation
- Carola Koenig, Senior Lecturer, Brunel University London
- Robert English, Senior Project Engineer, MMI Thornton Tomasetti
- Steve Howell, Technical Director, Abercus
WHY OUR SPEAKERS ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE SEMINAR:
||"The seminar hits so many points that it’s hard to single out any one. As a whole the seminar will show the breadth of the subject and the things that engineers need to think about to apply simulation usefully. Delegates will get a balanced view of simulation and a knowledge of the issues that need to be considered."

COVID-19 GUIDANCE FOR ATTENDEES:
We continue to operate all of our events in accordance with the most up to date UK Government advice on Covid-19.
From 24 February 2022 the Government removed the last domestic restrictions associated with Covid-19 in England. People are no longer required to self-isolate even if they test positive for Covid-19. The UK Government has published its plan for living with Covid-19 on the basis that although the virus is still in circulation, a return to pre-pandemic life is now possible. It is therefore down to individuals to assess the risk of returning to ‘normal’ activities such as social mixing and attending events.
However, it is important to us that we continue to protect each other and to support this we request:
- That you do not attend IMechE events if you feel unwell, particularly if you have respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms
- That you do not attend IMechE events if you have tested positive or suspect that you may have Covid-19
- That you continue to maintain good respiratory and hand hygiene i.e. covering your mouth and nose if you feel the need to cough or sneeze, washing and/or sanitising hands regularly
