While many who champion the growth of cannabis say the industry could drive Africa’s development, others have questions about whether farmer…
 
What is the single most measured thing in fire science? The answer is easy - temperature. We use it everywhere - from learning material properties in TGA's to expressing conditions in compartment fires. We use it at the same time to define exposure conditions for our structures and the acceptance criteria within them. We even use it in evacuation s…
