UW Live Fire Research Facility

The University of Waterloo Fire Research Group

Collaborates with a wide range of industrial and government partners on fire safety. Among other things, we examine the behaviour of full-scale fires, the flammability and performance of materials and products, fire initiation and spread, and methods of fire detection. Our world-class, $5.6 million fire research infrastructure includes a large cross-flow test area used for a variety of wind-driven experiments, including wind turbine performance.

We welcome requests from outside companies or research centres interested in research related to any aspect of fire performance, testing and development. Our large cross-flow test area is also suited to a variety of other wind driven experiments.
