FSE Laboratory : 


Fire Engineering Laboratory (FEL)

Location: Main Building

The laboratory built in 2015 for the purpose of research and supporting modules in the department where laboratory experiences are required. The laboratory consists of an area with different testing apparatuses including Cone Heater (ISO 5660), UL -94 Flame Spread test box, NIST Smoke Chamber, Bomb Calorimeter, Multi-gas analyzer, Convective Oven, Compartment Scale Models, and Fire Radiation Bench. The laboratory also possesses a pressure transducer (Omega) and bi-directional probes for fire flow measurements. It also has thermocouples, thermopiles, and heat flux gauges (Hukseflux) for thermal measurements. In addition, it utilizes industrial and high-precision load cells for mass measurements. All sensors and probes are connected using National Instruments DAQ modules in the laboratory.

Fire Modeling Computer Laboratory (FMCL)

Location: K Block

Fire Safety engineering department possess a computer laboratory for students and research purposes to model fire behaviors and evacuations. The laboratory includes 20 computers equipped with different fire engineering software including Pyrosim, Pathfinder, CFAST and FDS for various purposes. The students are allowed to use the space for their course works or final project, or attend fire and evacuation modelling classes. The laboratory also contains a supercomputer for scientific research purposes used by faculties.
