Fire Safety Engineering, one of the main consultancy and research services available to industry from the Centre for Numerical Modelling and Process Analysis (the Centre) at the University of Greenwich, is becoming a vital tool in cost- effective safety design. The Fire Safety Engineering Group (FSEG) is one of the largest research groups in the world dedicated to the development and application of mathematical modelling tools suitable for the simulation of fire related phenomena. Areas of expertise include, the Field Modelling, Evacuation Modelling, Combustion Modelling, Two-phase modelling (fire/water interaction) and Structural Models. Through links with the Centre's other research areas, it is also actively involved with the transfer of advanced visualisation, parallel computing, expert systems and software engineering techniques to fire-related application areas.

Since 1985, the group has cooperated with organisations such as:

Within Europe:
Airbus, British Aerospace, Buro Happold, Daimler-Chrysler, EPSRC, EU, European Space Agency, Fire Research Station, GEC-MARCONI, Home Office, NHS, Ove Arup and Partners, RINA, and the UK CAA.

Within Australia:
Lincolne Scott International and Melbourne Fire Brigade and;

Within North America:
Boeing, Bombardier Inc, FAA and NTSB.

In cooperation with these organisations, members of the group have pioneered the application of fire field models in novel environments such as air- and space-craft, the development of two-phase sprinkler/spray models for the building and aviation industry, the use of rule-based systems for evacuation simulation, the development of adaptive behaviour models for evacuation simulation and the application of parallel computing techniques to fire field modelling. The work of FSEG includes Research/Consultancy, Software Development, International Standards Development and Education/Training.
