The Centre for Technological Risk Studies (CERTEC) carries out research and teaching in technological risk and environmental impact fields using mathematical modelling of serious accidents, fires, explosions, toxic clouds, transport of hazardous goods, accidental environmental impact, industrial accidents, etc.
Its main lines of research are the study of hydrocarbon fires, the modelling of serious accidents, risk analysis in the transport of hazardous goods, environmental analysis of sea ports and the study of forest fires.
This research is carried out within the framework of international cooperation, for the government or for companies. The group also has strong international connections that result in joint research projects and exchange programmes for researchers and students.
