This subject examines causes of fire, the spread of fire, fire and smoke development, the behaviour of materials in fires, the effects of fire on structural integrity; fire testing and compartmentalisation. Fire separation; statutory requirements for horizontal and vertical fire exits, fire resistance ratings and the maintenance of resistance by means of fire stopping materials, fire protection systems are also examined.

1. Identify and apply key fire safety clauses from the National Construction Code; 2. Describe how 'deemed to satisfy' and 'performance-based' solutions to meet the NCC are developed and compare outcomes from both approaches; 3. Associate the role of a fire engineer with their impact on the fire engineering process; 4. Describe fire science fundamentals and fire dynamics and link these to design techniques and methodologies commonly used in the fire engineering discipline; 5. Analyse and predict human behaviour during a fire event and their interaction with fire safety systems; 6. Evaluate the impact fire testing has on the built environment, and 7. Explain the constraints and limitations of fire engineering.
