Cuerpo de Bomberos with the University of Costa Ri
This project researched and designed a fire-testing laboratory for the University of Costa Rica (UCR) to allow its sponsors, UCR and the National Fire Department of Costa Rica to establish their undergraduate Fire Protection Engineering program and test fire properties of common construction materials. The project team developed qualitative and quantitative analysis tools to prioritize instruments for the laboratory. Based on results, the team recommended five pieces of equipment for the laboratory that most closely meet both sponsors' needs, as well as safety measures and a computer-generated layout. Once established, this laboratory will enhance fire protection education and improve fire-fighting techniques in the country.
