Special Issue "Advances in Fire and Combustion Safety"
A special issue of Fire (ISSN 2571-6255).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 11 April 2022.
Interests: explosion; fire; security; natech; risk assessment
Continuous research seeking at the reduction of environmental impacts generated by several industrial fields and climate change effects have raised further challenges for the characterization and quantification of safety aspects related to combustion science. Most of the current unravelled questions involve either the characterization of undesired combustion or its interactions with the surrounding environment. Cutting-edge research dealing with physics, chemistry, technological, and procedural aspects represents an essential step toward the realization of novel concepts and robust practices. Indeed, the acquired know-how may have positive feedback either for the accurate consequence analysis or for the hazard assessment. Besides, the effectiveness of mitigation systems for innovative processes or alternative species is still under evaluation. The current special issue aims at gathering information by fundamental-based or case studies investigations, as well as experimental or numerical approaches valuable to fill the highlighted gaps on fire, wildfire, explosion and more in general on self-accelerating oxidation reactions. Researchers can submit articles presenting innovative studies or literature reviews related to fire safety.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Fire is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
