Numerical investigation of fires in aircrafts (external fires, fire behaviour of common fuselage materials, fire suppression in cargo compartments). Fluid-structure Interaction (FSI) simulations of fires in ship-board engine rooms. Investigation of fires in road tunnels and human behaviour during tunnel evacuation.
