This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.

Project description:One of the consequences of the industrial revolution of Industry 4.0 and the steady increase in labor productivity will be the production of increasing amounts of metal dust. The issue of protecting employees and technological equipment from metal dust will be important for the near future. Explosive metal powders have specific properties that differ from conventional explosive dusts (wood, flour). Metal powders have extremely explosive parameters, and the difference with conventional dusts is often hundreds of percent. In most plants where metal dusts occur, the risk of fire and explosion is real. Significant indicators of flammable dust properties are fire characteristics. The project will primarily focus on studying the characteristics of metal powders with an emphasis on flammability and explosiveness. Research will be conducted on unique fire engineering equipment. The project will use innovative practices that will significantly contribute to a comprehensive fire safety study.
