KTP Award Winning Partnership

The Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) project led by the BRE Centre of Fire Safety Engineering at The University of Edinburgh with Powerwall Systems Ltd won the Best Partnership Scotland Award given at a 2009 KTP Awards ceremony in London, 5th March. The project sponsor was The Technology Strategy Board

The project developed a methodology for the integral design of Light Steel Framing systems accounting for the global optimization of thermal efficiency, structural strength and fire resistance. The partnership has enhanced Powerwall's Research and Development Department. The experimental and computational work has led to a PhD thesis and several publications.

Powerwall was a sponsor of the 2006 Dalmarnock Fire Tests and helped to install a fully instrumented LSF wall in the experimental compartment.

NOTE: KTP is Europe's leading programme helping businesses to improve their competitiveness through the better use of the knowledge and technology that reside within UK universities.
