Subject Title
Fire Dynamics II

Subject Description
This course will provide an advanced understanding of the ways in which fires start, grow and spread. Also, explosions and protection from explosions will be covered. The course will develop mathematical equations and models which can be used to track and predict fire development characteristics. The course will cover burning rate, fire plumes and explosions, as well as characteristics of other hazardous materials. It will expand the concepts developed in prerequisite courses as they relate to the development of fires and explosions.

The course will introduce students to the mathematical concepts and the principles of thermodynamics which are relevant to the study of fire dynamics.

Credit Status
One subject college credit. FDY493 is a pre-requisite for this course.
