  1. 1. Integrating Fire Evacuation into the Building Information Modelling Workflow

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Nazim Yakhou; [2022]
    Keywords : Fire Safety Engineering; Building Information Modelling; Fire Evacuation; Performance Based Design; Golden Thread of Information; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Building Information Modelling (BIM) is arising gradually as a useful methodology in the AEC field. One of the many benefits of BIM is coordination between stakeholders from multiple disciplines. However, the field of Fire Safety Engineering (FSE) is relatively lagging by its lack of integration into this digital workflow. READ MORE

  2. 2. Consequences of using Quantitative Risk Assessment as a verification tool

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Joey Öström; [2022]
    Keywords : Quantitative Risk Assessment; QRA; performance-based design; verification tool; performance solution; performance requirements; fire risk assessment; residential building; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : What are the consequences of using Quantitative risk assessment (QRA) as a verification tool? Performance-based building codes differ from prescriptive-based codes in that they define specific objectives to be met, enabling the building designer to choose which solution to use so long it meets the objectives. This master’s thesis explores the consequences of using QRA as a verification tool in comparison to existing verification methods currently in use in Australia. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fire Risk and Hazard Analysis of Lithium-Ion Battery Technologies in Underground Facilities: A Literature Review

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Sean Meehan; [2022]
    Keywords : lithium-ion battery; hazards; risks; thermal runaway; detection; fire protection; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The past decades have seen an exponential growth of the lithium-ion battery (LIB) market as use of this high-energy storage has found applications in nearly every industry. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is interested in implementing this technology within their underground network and this literature review is intended to assist with addressing fire and safety concerns.

  4. 4. Mescape - A probabilistic mesoscopic model for fire evacuation in large gatherings

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Lorenzo Contini; [2022]
    Keywords : Human behaviour; crowd evacuation; mesoscopic modelling; hydraulic model; large gatherings; fire safety; performance-based design; quantitative risk assessment; consequence analysis; uncertainty analysis; probabilistic modelling; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This study presents a mesoscopic model that predicts pedestrian evacuation in large gatherings with probabilistic methods. The model is based on a coarse network representation of buildings, where occupants are treated at a different scale according to their location. READ MORE

  5. 5. INFLUENCE OF COOLING METHODS ON THE ENERGY DENSITY OF BATTERIES : Comparing different cooling methods for Lithium-ion batteries

    University essay from Mälardalens universitet/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Oscar Söderberg; Simon Norberg; [2022]
    Keywords : Lithium-ion batteries; Battery thermal management system; NCA; Cylindrical battery cell; C-rates; CFD; Energy density.;

    Abstract : Due to climate change, the energy system needs to change from traditional fossil fuels to be dominated by renewable energy sources. Not only the energy system, but the increasing number of vehicles and emissions from the transport sector are a problem for climate change and that need to be solved. READ MORE
