Careers The entry requirement into the post-graduate programme is a generally a B. Around 7 to 12 students graduate from the programme each year. We offer four qualifications: The Post-graduate Certificate PGCert in Fire Engineering is a taught only qualification requiring a combination of four and level fire engineering courses.
All new part-time students start in this qualification and are upgraded to a Masters programme if they wish subject to their progress.
The full-time programme can be completed in six months and the part-time programme takes two Thesis information retrieval. The Masters of Engineering Studies MEngSt in Fire Engineering qualification requires eight courses of which two will normally be a project and six a combination of and level fire engineering taught courses.
The full-time programme can be completed in one year and the part-time programme takes three to four years.
This programme is only offered as a full-time option and typically takes 16 — 20 months to complete. The PhD qualification is a research-only qualification. The full-time programme takes at least three years and the part-time programme takes at least five years of advanced study.
If you require further information please check out the qualifications and courses or contact any of the fire engineering staff including Leigh Davidson postgrad administrator. Fire Engineering has two laboratories: The small-scale fire laboratory contains the Cone Calorimeter used for ignition, burning rate and flame spread measurements; the wind-tunnel; a small-scale furnace and the ISO ignition apparatus.
The medium-scale fire laboratory contains the furniture calorimeter that can measure fires up to around 2 MW. Space is also available in the Civil and Natural Resources Engineering laboratories for specific projects.
The fire laboratories include instrumentation and data acquisition equipment used as needed for particular research and testing projects. Both the furniture and cone calorimeters are used for graduate laboratory classes as well as Masters and Ph.
Cone calorimeter Ignition and burning rate The cone calorimeter is used intensively to obtain ignition and burning rate data.
Materials tested have included upholstered furniture foam and fabric combinations, various species of timber, manufactured wood products, gypsum wallboard, cables and metro train construction materials. Flame spread The cone calorimeter was adapted to measure opposed flow flame spread by the apparatus referred to as the Reduced scale Ignition and Flame spread Technique RIFT.
The LIFT test apparatus was built in-house and can be setu-up so that materials can be tested either in the vertical or horizontal orientation. Wind-tunnel Students taking the Fire Safety Systems course, as well as Master's research students carrying out project work, use the wind-tunnel.
It was used to determine appropriate distributions of the Response Time Index RTI for a range of commercially available sprinklers. Measurement of the sprinkler conduction C factor has also undertaken. Small-scale furnace The small-scale furnace is used for testing structural timber connections under fire conditions.
Internal connections using high strength steel bars epoxy grouted into LVL members have been under development at the University and were assessed in the furnace.
The model consisted of a supporting steel frame with ceramic fibre insulation boards attached. The model simulated a fire within a communicating space in an atrium building, and consisted of two main units, the fire compartment and the smoke exhaust hood.
Experiments investigated the entrainment of air into the spill plume in which a downstand and a balcony were present.
Water mist systems A compartment and plenum space was designed to carry out experiments on the use of a water mist system with a displacement ventilation system. Fire tests were conducted to measure the effects of the water mist system on the compartment conditions.
ISO Ignition apparatus The ISO ignition apparatus was used to obtain ignition and burning rate data on upholstered furniture foam and fabric combinations and various species of timber. Furniture Calorimeter The furniture calorimeter can be used to measure the rate of heat release of a variety of items such as furniture, piled stock, vegetation, etc.
