The main goal of the 1st Asia-Pacific Combustion Institute Summer School — Fundamental Combustion Problems in Fires (APCISS-1) is to introduce intermediate graduate students, industrial researchers and practicing engineers to fundamental combustion problems applied to outdoor and structural fires. We expect this school to contribute to create and reinforce the collaboration bonds between different academic institutions and research groups in the Asia Pacific and South America.
Dates and location
The activities are scheduled for November 10 - 15, 2019 in the coastal city of Valparaíso. Workshops will be held at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María.
Scope and objectives
The objectives of the APCISS-1 are to expose the attending students to the domain of combustion science with strong applications to fire safety. This includes an intensive, high-quality introduction to fundamental and applied combustion topics through lectures by highly recognized academics from leading world institutions. Specific objectives are to expose attendants to:
- High quality lectures in combustion;
- Hands-on training in combustion-based fire safety aspects, including experimental and numerical workshops; and
- Form research and collaboration networks.
The school will have a theoretical track and a practical track. The theoretical track will consist of an introduction of fundamental combustion aspects applied to fires. The practical track will consist of lectures where applied fire safety topics will be delivered by leading scientists and practitioners, and of workshops where the students will be asked to apply some of the knowledge covered in the lectures. For this track, students will be divided into two groups, Modeling and Experiments. In both, we wish to present fire science aspects in a more practical way, which will finalize with a hands-on workshop session at the combustion and computer labs at USM in Valparaiso.
