Spadeadam Visit

Many thanks to DNV GL for inviting fire MSc students, staff and graduates to the second and now annual visit to the Spadeadam world leading test site in Cumbria. This year the invitation was extended to all ERI/DTC students and staff, with a total of over forty people in attendance for the day’s event. Like last year, a range of highly impressive demonstrations were arranged including full-scale pool and jet fires, gas explosions and solid explosive detonations. The close working relationship between DNV GL and the University continues,  with DNV GL having fifteen employees currently undertaking postgraduate Fire and Explosion studies at Leeds, where Clara Huescar Medina (ERI PhD student) is now employed.
