Fire and Materials
A world leader in the study of fire dynamics and the application of fire models, Professor Dembsey is developing new techniques and guidance documents for practicing engineers to measure fire properties of materials. His work will allow practicing engineers to more accurately predict fire behavior. Other projects include work on the fire safety of green building materials and how materials affect the optimization of building assemblies for fire performance, ease of manufacturing and cost effectiveness.
My materials work will allow fire protection engineers to develop more effective and efficient designs in the built environment and serve as a basis for improvement of regulatory policy. The result will be greater life safety and property in today’s cost-conscience world.Nicholas Dembsey
