FSEG in the world media

 

News of FSEG activities is frequently covered by the world media. On these pages we have provided links to, or copies of, some of these FSEG related news stories. The list is not intended to be definitive and only includes some of the coverage that has been brought to our attention. As FSEG research activities cover a wide range of applications, we have categorised the coverage into two broad sections, Aviation and Maritime related stories and stories relating to Buildings and Pedestrian Dynamics. Please note some of the older web links may be broken, as these are maintained by third parties we have no control over their currency.
