Evaluation of the Residual Strength of a Polyester/E-Glass Composite Tray After Exposure to High Temperatures Due to a Nearby Fire Event

The mechanical behavior of pultruded polyester/E-Glass trays was evaluated as a function of high temperature exposure time at 250°C. This temperature was chosen based on the composite’s thermal behavior, which was determined by thermogravimetric …

Development of a Methodology for Interface Boundary Selection in the Multiscale Road Tunnel Fire Simulations

The simulation of large complex dynamical systems such as a fire in road tunnels is necessary but costly. Therefore, there is a crucial need to design efficient models. Coupling of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models and 1D network modeling …


Real-Time Fire Monitoring and Visualization for the Post-Ignition Fire State in a Building

During a fire event, environmental threats to building occupants and first responders include extreme temperatures, toxic gases, disorientation due to poor visibility coupled with unfamiliar surroundings, and a changing indoor environment. In …


Factors Affecting the Make-Up Air and Their Influence on the Dynamics of Atrium Fires

In case of fire, constructive features of typical atria could favor the spread of smoke. This makes the design of their smoke control and management systems a challenging task. Five full-scale fire experiments in the literature have been analyzed …


Probabilistic Analysis of Building Fire Severity Based on Fire Load Density Models

This paper presents the compilation of 35 fire load density surveys for office and residential buildings. Limited data can be obtained for contemporary buildings. Using recent fire load survey results and the Bayesian inference theory …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Fire Technology publishes original contributions, both theoretical and empirical, that contribute to the solution of problems in fire safety science and engineering. It is the leading journal in the field, publishing applied research dealing with the full range of actual and potential fire hazards facing humans and the environment. It covers the entire domain of fire safety science and engineering problems relevant in industrial, operational, cultural, and environmental applications, including modeling, testing, detection, suppression, human behavior, wildfires, structures, and risk analysis.

The aim of Fire Technology is to push forward the frontiers of knowledge and technology by encouraging interdisciplinary communication of significant technical developments in fire protection and subjects of scientific interest to the fire protection community at large.

It is published in conjunction with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE). The mission of NFPA is to help save lives and reduce loss with information, knowledge, and passion. The mission of SFPE is advancing the science and practice of fire protection engineering internationally.

Material submitted for publication in Fire Technology is subject to a peer-review process. Decisions on manuscripts will be based on validity, usefulness, and presentation. An eminent international editorial board ensures and attracts high-quality articles. The main attributes sought in accepted contributions are originality, novelty, rigour, timeliness, and clarity. Review articles are welcome, and issues of Fire Technology may also feature brief technical communications, book reviews, and letters to the editor.

Annually, two awards are presented to the best papers appearing in Fire Technology. The Harry C. Bigglestone Award for excellence in communication of fire protection concepts is given by the Fire Protection Research Foundation to the best overall paper, and the Jack Bono Award for engineering communications is given by The Society of Fire Protection Engineers’ Educational and Scientific Foundation to the paper that has most contributed to the advancement of professional fire protection engineering. The Jack Watts Award for Outstanding Reviews of Fire Technology celebrates high quality and helpful reviewers, an essential component of our journal, and is presented annually to those whose reviews were most valuable in terms of the quality, in-depth, number and timelieness.

With thousands of subscribers worldwide, Fire Technology is a unique agent for the dissemination of scholarly work in fire safety science.
