Fire and Materials Group

fire

The SCI Fire and Materials Group, launched in April 2013, has grown out of the Fire Chemistry Group which began as a discussion group for individuals working in the field of fire chemistry. This discussion group outgrew its original boundary and became a full-fledged Technical Interest Group in its own right soon after.

Purpose

The SCI Fire and Materials Group exists to promote research and development in fire science, specifically fire chemistry, by providing a forum for the discussion of pure and applied research in these areas. Emphasis is placed on holding regular meetings to encourage the discussion of ongoing research and its broader applications, particularly among younger scientists.
The objectives of the Group are:

  • To promote research and developments into the interactions between fire and materials, and their relevance to fire safety, by providing a forum for the discussion of pure and applied research in these areas.
  • To provide a unique UK interface between the academic and industrial/commercial sectors.
  • To hold regular meetings to encourage the discussion of ongoing research and its broader applications, particularly among younger scientists.
  • To encourage membership from industrialists and academics, including students, with an interest in this important area as well as members of other relevant organisations such as research establishments and fire safety interests.

Associations

The Fire and Materials Group has close links with the University of Bolton.
