Piotr Turkowski, Ph.D.

Fire Research Department, Building Research Institute

Dr. Piotr Turkowski worked for the Fire Research Department of the Building Research Institute for over ten years, where since 2017, he has been the Head of the Fire Resistance and Fire Protection Systems of Structural Elements Division. He carried out over 200 fire resistance tests and 400 technical opinions and is also a co-author of over 60 scientific publications. Piotr Turkowski is an active member of standardization committees related to fire safety – European Committee for Standardization (CEN) – CEN/TC 127, CEN/TC 250, the Polish Committee for Standardisation (PKN) PKN/KT 180, and the EGOLF organization. His professional activity focuses primarily on fire protection assessment of steel and reinforced concrete structures and the fire resistance analysis of roads and rail tunnels.

“Unexpected phenomena in fire resistance tests”

How much easier it would be to calculate all this fire resistance simply numerically or from a formula. If only this concrete not will chip off so much, this gasket would swell like a muffin in an oven, and this glass would break evenly like a symphony orchestra plays. This lecture presents the unexpected and unpredictable phenomena in fire resistance tests that keep fire safety engineers awake at night and bring them to the ground. Interesting questions about concrete, wool, and polystyrene in the context of fire resistance – it is here!
