This on-line course addresses the forensic analysis of structural fire incidents in terms of enclosure fire dynamics and the impact of fire safety subsystems used to prevent or mitigate the consequences of fire. These subsystems include: ignition prevention, material flammability and flame spread, fire detection and alarm, fire suppression, smoke movement and management, structural fire protection and egress systems. Failures in these subsystems are addressed in terms of differences between expected and observed performance.
