Firefighters are exposed to significant levels of heat stress during duty, and therefore fire-fighting exercises in hot environments must be regularly performed [1]. This study aimed to investigate the effect of extreme heat exposure on physiological responses during and after one simulated smoke dive.

Personal protection water mist systems can produce a water mist that can cool down and limit a fire in a small area in a dwelling. The system is equipped with sensitive detectors which can activate the system in the early stages of the fire and limit the fire spread, and in some cases extinguish the fire. This gives more time for evacuation, which...

Branner er hendelser som kan skade mennesker, materielle verdier og miljø. Ulike myndigheter, organisasjoner, bedrifter og aktører bør kunne lære av branner for å redusere sannsynligheten for fremtidige branner og minimere skadene. For å oppnå en reduksjon av antall branner og konsekvensene av disse, trengs en innsats fra flere aktører, og det vil...

This article presents an analysis of a fire in a municipal apartment building used as housing for people with challenges connected to drug addiction. The fire took place in Norway 7 th of August 2021. The incident happened during the night and the fire was spreading quickly and intensely via the external wooden balconies. The combination of risk fa...

Fires are devastating events that may harm humans, properties and the environment. Authorities, organisations, companies and societies should be able to learn from fire incidents to reduce the probability and impact of future fires. To achieve a reduction in fires and their consequences, an effort is needed from multiple actors and both technical,...

Presentation
Full-text available
Modern buildings are being built with increasingly complex technical installations and energy systems. The introduction of renewable energy production, like photovoltaic (PV) panels on building roofs and facades and an increasing number of connected electric appliances, changes the way the electric power is distributed from production to end-user....
Technical Report
Full-text available
The late 90s and the early 2000s was a period with relative extensive research and innovation in the area of manual fire extinguishing methods and equipment for the fire service. New equipment such as the cutting extinguisher and extinguishing spears allowed to conduct offensive attacks from the exterior of a building, reducing the exposure of fire...

Thesis
Full-text available
Important power and mechanical drive demands offshore are met by utilizing gas turbines. The safe and reliable operation of these fine-tuned thermo machines are of key importance to maintain platform operation. Problems related to challenging weather conditions and especially ice, are of real concern to engineers. Icing both precipitate and condens...

Project
The aim of this project is to collect and systematize information and data from real fires to increase the knowledge about fire development, direct and underlying causes of fires, fire risks and the effect of fire safety measures. Collecting and learning from experiences from fires of specific interest will be a continuous process, and a system for registration of data will be developed.
Project
The project will explore possibilities of efficient fire extinguishing by fixed systems for buildings and by equipment to be used by fire brigades during firefighting. The project will focus on extinguishing system and methods using small amounts of water, and mainly for residential buildings and buildings in densely built areas. Methods for documentation of extinguishing effect will be investigated and a proposal for documentation of alternative systems to regular sprinkler systems will be developed. The project will also explore possibilities for external extinguishing systems for wood buildings in densely built areas, possibly by modification and adaption of methods and equipment used in other applications (e.g. in the offshore industry, maritime applications) to develop innovative solutions for buildings.
Project
The project will build on findings from earlier projects on characteristics of vulnerable groups and fire fatalities, and on fire safety measures for these groups and for dwellings in general. Communication of existing knowledge will be an important part of this project, but also development of innovative new solutions.collaboration with the fire service is crucial. Input from parties with an interest in fire safety in dwellings (e.g. health care, social service, relevant industry, building owners etc.) will be collected and possibilities for innovations explored.
