    Special Issue on Fire Engineering


    Fire engineering is the art and science of designing buildings and facilities for life safety and property protection in the event of unwanted fire and smoke. Fire engineering has become a growth industry with the development of economy. It includes understanding the behavior of fires and smoke, the behavior of people exposed to fires and the performance of burning buildings, as well as the impact of fire protection systems.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring fire engineering. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Design on building fire protection
    • Fire separation facilities
    • Fire protection construction
    • Fire water system
    • Gas fire extinguishing system
    • Automatic fire alarm system
    • Smoke control system
    • Fireproofing and flame retardant materials
    • Fire engineering technology
    • Fire safety assessment

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Fire Engineering” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
