  • An Architecture for an Integrated Fire Emergency Response System for the Built Environment 

    Upadhyay, Rochan; Pringle, Gavin; Beckett, George; Potter, Stephen; Han, Liangxiu; Welch, Stephen; Usmani, Asif; Torero, Jose L (The International Assocation of Fire Safety Science (IAFSS), 2008-09)
    FireGrid is a modern concept that aims to leverage a number of modern technologies to aid fire emergency response. In this paper we provide a brief introduction to the FireGrid project. A number of different technologies ...
  • Introduction to FireGrid 

    Welch, Stephen; Usmani, Asif; Upadhyay, Rochan; Berry, Dave; Potter, Stephen; Torero, Jose L (The University of Edinburgh, 2007-11-14)
    FireGrid is an ambitious and innovative project, seeking to develop the technology to support a new way of managing emergency response in the modern built environment. Specific novel aspects include the integration of ...
  • Sensor-linked fire simulation using a Monte-Carlo approach 

    Koo, Sung-Han; Fraser-Mitchell, Jeremy; Upadhyay, Rochan; Welch, Stephen (The International Assocation of Fire Safety Science (IAFSS), 2008-09)
    This study is aimed at developing a predictive capability for uncontrolled compartment fires which can be “steered” by real-time measurements. This capability is an essential step towards facilitating emergency response ...
  • Smoke buildup and light scattering in a cylindrical cavity above a uniform flow 

    Upadhyay, Rochan; Ezekoye, Ofodike (Elsevier, 2005)
    In this study, we use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and aerosol dynamics modeling to investigate the buildup of smoke and light scattering in a cylindrical cavity geometry, considered to be an idealized representation ...
  • Towards a Tailored Sensor Network for Fire Emergency Monitoring in Large buildings 

    Upadhyay, Rochan (2007-10-02)
    In this presentation, we describe some of the ongoing efforts in developing a wireless sensor network tailored specifically for fire emergency monitoring. Network simulations of a dense sensor network with a flat architecture ...
  • Towards a Tailored Sensor Network for Fire Emergency Monitoring in Large Buildings 

    Tsertou, Athanasia; Upadhyay, Rochan; McLaughlin, Stephen; Laurenson, David I (2007)
    Modern fire emergency systems are slowly moving from the traditional data-logging systems to a heterogeneous and dense network of wired/wireless sensors that can give a more complete view of the phenomenon. When the density ...
  • Treatment of Design Fire Uncertainty using Quadrature Method of Moments 

    Upadhyay, Rochan; Ezekoye, Ofodike A (2008-02)
    The use of a single design fire in a performance based fire design code typically fails to account for the inherent uncertainty in knowledge of the future use of the space. Uncertainties in knowledge of intended use and ...
