Short Course for Civil Engineers and Professionals
On
Building Design for Fire and Life Safety
(26th  29th June, 2019)
at
Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar

Course Objectives:
As the density of Indian urban and rural areas grows, the threat of fire poses more and more challenges. There have been several fires in the recent past which caused significant damages, loss of life, and economical setbacks. On an average, at least one sizeable fire makes it to the news stories every week.


This course aims to cover aspects of fire and life safety in design of buildings. The course will include discussion of provisions of NBC as well as global standards and existing state-of-the-art. Few dedicated sessions will be conducted on fire performance of building facade systems and perimeter fire barriers  systems that are increasingly being used in modern buildings. Such systems are relatively less understood from fire and life safety perspectives and will be covered by experts during this short course.


IIT Gandhinagar is also home to a unique full-scale fire testing facility, which is the only of its kind facility in India. Details of fire tests conducted in past will also be discussed during this course.
It is expected that the course will enhance the understanding of fire and life safety aspects of built environment among all stakeholders of the Civil Engineering community.
