Interflam is among the most important fire safety events, organised every three years. It is attended by around 350 engineers, scientists, practitioners and regulators from around the globe to discuss the state of the art and meet colleagues in an atmosphere conducive to exchanging and developing ideas. Interflam 2016 took place from 4 to 6 July, near London.

Efectis group was one of the sponsors, and our much-visited stand was manned by our team – Daniel Joyeux (Efectis Holding), Eric Guillaume, Roman Chiva, Gildas Auguin, Guillaume Cueff (Efectis France), and Rudolf Van Mierlo (Efectis Nederland). Movies of our fire tests were particularly appreciated.

Efectis was very active during Interflam 2016, contributing:

  • four conference speeches on the fire safety of facades (with kingspan and LNE), modelling the fire resistance of timber doors, virtual furnaces, and the Epressi methodology for fire safety in nuclear plants (with Nuvia and EDF, as members of AFCEN)
  • one poster on jet fire modelling
  • two session chairs (ignition and extinction, Fire Safety Engineering)

We thank the organization for this large international events.
