The 9th International Seminar on Fire and Explosion Hazards took place in St Petersburg, Russia last April. In representation of UQ Fire, Mohamad Lutfi Ramadhan, Vinny Gupta, Angela Solarte and Juan Cuevas acted as speakers while Aaron Bolanos presented a poster, all of them describing part of the outcomes of their respective research projects. Topics addressed by our team included wildland fires, compartment fires, flame spread in engineered bamboo, Cross Laminated Timber fire testing and Structural Insulated Panels fire behaviour. The seminar allowed to liaise with fellow researchers and generated new ground for collaboration in the near future.
Our delegation wishes to congratulate the organizing committee of ISFEH9 on a flawlessly planned and executed activity.
