Case Studies in Fire Safety - First papers published! Freely accessible

We are delighted to announce the publication of the first papers in Case Studies in Fire Safety. Case Studies in Fire Safety provides an open forum for the rapid publication of short, structured case studies in fire safety and related short communications providing an essential compendium of case studies for fire protection engineers, designers, researchers and other practitioners in the field of fire safety.


Heating patterns in English homes: national survey vs common model assumptions

Hightlights of this open access article published in Building and Environment:
• Building stock models need to revise some of their assumptions on space heating.
• Weekends and weekdays are similar in their heating pattern and duration.
• Estimated heating demand temperature is slightly lower than the assumed 21 °C.
• Homes differ widely in their hours of heating and their demand temperature.
• The average temperature during heating periods is about 19.5 °C.
