Abstract

Energy consumption is rising alongside the associated danger of fire due to the increased industrialization and urbanisation of previously rural areas. An example of a building that is predisposed to fire has a furnace on the bottom floor, one that is used in the production of iron and steel, or thermal power plants. It’s difficult, time-consuming, and potentially hazardous to intervene in a fire from the exterior of a high-rise structure, whose number is expanding every day with construction technology. It’s hard to forecast how long a fire will burn or how far it will spread. Complete fire safety practices are especially important in densely populated buildings to prevent fire dangers to people and property. Because of the high temperatures produced by the fire, the structural system's parts may lose stiffness and strength, resulting in structural damage. A wide variety of insulation materials are utilised to shield the elements of the building carrier system and the materials on which they are constructed from extreme heat and flame. A combination of these materials is utilised to create the insulation systems in use today. Although there are a variety of insulation applications that may be developed for fire protection, covering the environment is more frequent these days. To insulate anything, you can use the wrapping technique, which is wrapping or covering the outside of the item to be protected with insulation. Three cutting-edge insulation technologies, all suitable for application in fire prevention, are presented within the framework of this research.
