TUD Action COST C17
Built Heritage: Fire Loss to Historic Buildings

Descriptions are provided by the Actions directly via e-COST.

The main objective of the Action was the definition, at a European level, of the degree of loss to √Ę‚‚¨Ň“Built Heritage√Ę‚‚¨ through the effects of fire and the proposal of remedial actions and recommendations to combat such loss, using minimal invasive techniques.

A first area of interest was mainly objective-oriented and aims at several practical issues, such as optimizing fire detection methods and developing fire-fighting strategies. The final objective is to protect human health and life, to conserve cultural heritage and to prevent material loss in general.

The second area of interest was method-oriented and aimed to develop or to improve the different scientific (engineering and physics) tools, which are required for the realization and execution of the above-mentioned tasks.

A huge communication activity was undertaken by COST C17 members in different international conference in order to disseminate the Action√Ę‚‚¨‚„Ęs results.
