Hybrid seminar: Fire Safety of timber – burnout and structural performance

August 24, 2023 - 9:00 am / 12:20 pm

Fire safety of timber

Are you a structural or fire engineer working with or interested in learning more about load-bearing timber structures? Want to delve into key considerations for their design and the interaction between fire and structures? Then our upcoming hybrid seminar is just what you need!

The seminar is conducted primarily in English and speakers include Angus Law from The University of Edinburgh, Gustav Lanng Madsen and Bo Pedersen from Artelia, Daniel Brandon from RISE and Ian Pope from DBI.

​We present key findings from recent research on the performance of timber structures in ‘natural’ fires, covering topics such as design for burnout and considerations for the decay phase of a fire. We also focus on the documentation of non-compliant timber construction in Denmark concerning structures and fire. We explore possibilities, provide examples, and highlight important aspects to consider.

​We look forward to your participation, whether you join us in person or virtually.

Target group

The hybrid meeting is aimed at structural and fire engineers who work with, or are interested in learning more about, load-bearing timber structures and considerations in relation to their design – including the interaction and interfaces between fire and structures.
