FireGrid: Integrated emergency response and fire safety engineering for the future built environment
Torero, Jose L
FireGrid is researching the development and integration of modelling, sensors, Grid, HPC, and C/C technologies. It will stimulate further research, in new safety systems and strategies, in new sensor technologies, in improved modelling techniques and in Grid technologies and operation. By integrating previously uncoupled tools, FireGrid will allow true performance-based design for the built environment. It will introduce a new emergency response paradigm, using scenarios planned and stored in advance in conjunction with super-real-time simulation. Deployment of FireGrid will reduce costs and save lives.
