Prof Bart Merci is Full Professor at Ghent University, Belgium. He is the head of the research unit ‘Combustion, Fire and Fire Safety’ at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. The research team consists of 3 postdoctoral researchers and about 10 PhD students. He is the Program Director of the International Master of Science in Fire Safety Engineering, with partners: Ghent University, The University of Edinburgh, Lund University, ETH Zürich, University of Queensland and University of Maryland. He is the former President of the Belgian Section of The Combustion Institute. He is Editor-in-Chief of Fire Safety Journal and serves in the editorial board of other journals. He is member of the Executive Committee of the International Association for Fire Safety Science. He co-authored more than 130 paper on WoS and 2 books.
There are many time scales and length scales involved in fires. This presentation will focus on modeling aspects in turbulence and combustion, as well as some aspects of radiation. It will be illustrated how a step-wise approach allows to make decisions. Two cases will be discussed in depth, namely the plume of a methanol pool fire and a case where a water spray interacts with a thermal plume.
