DifferenceMakers: Amit Varma
Varma and his team designed a system made up of heating panels to simulate the effects of fire on steel structures. The panels have electrical coils, like giant toaster ovens, and are placed close to the surface of the specimens. As the system simulates the effects of fire, test structures are subjected to forces with hydraulic equipment to mimic the loads experienced in buildings. http://www.purdue.edu/differencemakers/varma.html
