Fire Research Laboratory
trang cá độ bóng đá uy tín nhất việt namOur Fire Research Laboratory facility houses fire investigation equipment used by experienced research academics available for research, fire investigation work and training.
The specialist Fire Research Laboratory brought together the existing expertise in fire retardancy and fire toxicity which have moved from the Universities of Salford and Bolton to combine with the existing Centre for Fire and Explosion Research produce a Centre of Excellence in Fire and Hazards Science.
The Fire Research Laboratory is fully equipped with modern analytical instrumentation and a comprehensive range of small and medium scale fire tests. This will enable the team to pioneer and undertake the development of a new generation of fire safe materials. It will provide a vital service to industrial research and development, allowing improvements in fire safety to be made, before products reach the final, accredited standard testing laboratories.
Crucially, it will also provide detailed chemical analysis, presenting a unique insight into how fire retardants work, and how their performance may be improved.
trang cá độ bóng đá uy tín nhất việt namThe history of the group’s involvement in fire goes back to 1981, when rapid scanning time-of-flight mass spectrometers with thermal and laser pyrolysis were used to look at the reactive species emanating from decomposing polymers. This approach has evolved into the use of controlled atmosphere and heating rate pyrolysis interfaced to GC-MS for identification of thermal decomposition products.
Much of the specialist equipment at the Laboratory has been designed and developed by our experts over a number of years to gain experimental information towards the above goals. In addition to a suite of laboratory tools for basic decomposition and combustion studies, the Laboratory specialised equipment and facilities. The UCLan Fire Research Laboratory has a very wide range of experimental methods and many years of experience in understanding the burning behaviour of all types of materials, especially in the development of those with improved performance in fire. This accumulated knowledge and research expertise can be made available through general liaison, advice and consultancy services.
The particular areas of expertise at the UCLan Laboratories are:
- Burning behaviour and relationship between small and large scale studies
- Decomposition and combustion mechanisms and influence of additives • Quantification of toxicants present in the fire effluent
- Smoke evolution
- Environmental aspects
trang cá độ bóng đá uy tín nhất việt namThe fire programmes are also supported by access to the facilities at Washington Hall, the UK’s International Fire, Training and Development Centre. The facilities at Washington Hall include a number of fire grounds, flashover units, breathing apparatus units, sprinkler demonstration units, fire extinguisher areas, and a large fire house where a number of scenarios can be simulated.
