Very excited to announce that our grant was recently approved. Our Project titled A Framework for Travelling Fires in Structural Design for Canada is a multi-national collaboration with CERIB in Paris France, and Imperial College in London, United Kingdom. The project involves student Rheanna Johnson visiting and interning in France the next 2 to 3 months to collaborate with Mohammed Heidari at CERIB’s head quarters. Rheanna is supported with a Mitacs Globalink Scholarship. She is joining Chloe Jeanneret abroad who last month departed for Imperial College, as part of the NSERC summer research grant. Chloe is collaborating with Dr. Guillermo Rein and his Haze lab team. The students are both studying the design fire methodology called travelling fires. Travelling Fires Methodology has been utilized in nearly 40 iconic structures across the world, and is being implemented within a Canadian case study this fall.
