Advaned Fire Retardant Materials

Recent discovered two-dimensional (2D) sheet-like nanomaterials and bio-retardants provide a unique opportunity to strengthen the flammability resistance properties of polymers. These thermally stable nano-fillers have the ability to consolidate char layers by significantly suppressing the heat and mass transfer between the material matrix and flame zone.

Computational Material Synthesis

While most of the recent developed materials are nanocomposites such as nano-particles, nano-sheets or nano-scale transitional metals. In order to enhance our understanding of the properties of such materials, it is essential to develop computational predictive models to simulate the mechanical, electrical, chemical or even flammability properties of the polymer composites, where input data can be achieved via molecular dynamics modelling.

Fire Mitigation and Protection Technologies

Fire risks arising with elctrical vehicles, energy and renewable storage systems are difficult to mitigate due to the coupled electrochemical phenomena. It is essential to establish critical understanding of the fire dynamics coupled with the electrical and chemical reactions for better design of fire suppresion and mitigation strategies.
