PASSIVE AND ACTIVE FIRE PROTECTION

Most buildings are designed and constructed with passive fire protection in mind. The passive fire protection systems contain the fire in a given area. However, increasingly Active fire protection, which aims at stopping the fire altogether, is now becoming popular. In order to achieve the objectives of both fire protection systems, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has become indispensable and Fluid Mechanics courses are now focusing on CFD as one of the core subjects of study.
