Fire Behaviour and Combustion

  1. Explain the fire triangle and its components. How does the removal of any one component affect the fire?

  2. Describe the stages of fire development: incipient, growth, fully developed, and decay. What factors influence each stage?

  3. What is flashover, and what conditions contribute to its occurrence in a fire scenario?

  4. Compare the combustion processes of a solid, liquid, and gas. How do the combustion characteristics differ for each phase?

Fire Detection and Suppression

  1. List and explain the different types of fire detection systems. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each type?

  2. Describe the principles behind automatic fire sprinkler systems. How do they work to suppress a fire?

  3. What is the purpose of a fire extinguisher? Provide examples of different types of fire extinguishers and the types of fires they are designed to combat.

  4. Explain the concept of a fire alarm zone and how it relates to building safety.

Fire Protection Systems

  1. Discuss the importance of compartmentalization in fire safety engineering. How does it prevent the spread of fire within a building?

  2. Describe the design considerations for an effective fire escape route in a commercial building.

  3. What is a smoke management system? How does it enhance the safety of building occupants during a fire emergency?

Fire Risk Assessment and Codes

  1. What is a fire risk assessment? Explain the key steps involved in conducting a thorough fire risk assessment for a commercial building.

  2. Discuss the role of building codes and standards in fire safety engineering. How do these regulations help ensure the safety of occupants?

  3. Compare prescriptive-based codes with performance-based codes in fire safety engineering. What are the advantages and limitations of each approach?

Human Behaviour and Evacuation

  1. Describe the factors that influence human behavior during a fire emergency. How do people's reactions impact evacuation procedures?

  2. What is the "Egress Time" concept? How can engineers optimize building design to facilitate efficient evacuation?

  3. Explain the concept of a "refuge area" in the context of fire safety. Why are these areas important in tall buildings?
