Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the subject is to teach the student to be able to solve problems of fire safety in buildings by the application of general methods utilising the synthesis of knowledge in almost all branches of science. By the methods of mathematical modelling and by the evaluation of new findings the student will be able to apply the knowledge to the evacuation of people, the origin and spread of the fire and its products.

Summary

The aim of fire safety in structures is to prevent casualties and personal health damage and property losses or damages. It is especially the case of forming conditions for safe evacuations from burning or fire-endangered structures, preventing the spread of fire inside as well as outside the structure and forming the conditions for effective operations of fire fighting brigades. The structure must be dimensioned to fit expected fire effects. The core of development of the given field is the specification of expected fire effects and the determination of optimum fire fighting measures, which includes the prevention of fire production and development in its first stage, the determination of fire risk with a fully developed fire, the specification of the third stage of fire, the dimensioning of building members and construction systems to fit the presupposed temperature field of particular fire stages, the optimisation of fire-fighting measures and economic risks, spreading of combustion products in a structure, person's movements in the course of evacuation, conditions for fire spreading outside of a structure and elsewhere, fire-fighting routes and conditions for efficient fire-fighting operations.
