Benjamin Khoo is a second-year PhD student in Imperial Hazelab, Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London, UK. His PhD, under the guidance of Prof Guillermo Rein, aims to use computational fluid dynamics to predict flame spread over and under façade elements. His PhD is sponsored by EPSRC and ARUP. Prior to his PhD, he studied Mechanical Engineering at UCL.
His research focuses to identify how the interaction between different elements within the façade system affect the rate of flame spread over building façade.
