The division of Fire Safety represents the teaching in the field of fire safety.

In research, the focus is on experimental and theoretical work on fire and smoke generation and smoke propagation. The determination of fire side effects caused by smoke and toxic gases is investigated as well as the load-bearing and deformation behaviour of building components and structures, e.g. of tunnels.
