Achievements
Prof. Fan has been engaged in cross-disciplinary research on fire safety science and engineering. He has presided over the founding of the State Key Laboratory of Fire Science and the Research Center for Thermal Safety Engineering under the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He also helped create the journal of Fire Safety Science. Prof. Fan established the mathematical and physical model of describing the interactions of buoyancy, charcoal smoke, flow, heat transfer and combustion in fires, and proposed the dual theoretical model for the description of the discipline of fire safety science and engineering. He also developed the net composite model for restricted fire zones, the multi-dimensional model for forest fires, and the non-linear fire dynamics, which has laid a solid scientific ground for combustion and fire simulation, and for detection and risk assessment. His research results have also provided innovative support for fire early warning, detection and retardation in construction, forestry, industrial, and aerospace fields. Prof. Fan has authored seven monographs, 215 research papers, and 6 authorized invention patents to date. So far, Prof. Fan has graduated 22 masters, 10 doctorates and 11 postdoctoral students.
 
Honors and Awards
Prof. Fan has scored 14 important research achievements, whose research has earned him one second prize of the National Teaching Achievement Award, as well as the first, second and third prizes of the scientific and technological progress awards at provincial and ministerial levels. In 1996, Prof. Fan was a recipient of the May Day National Labor Medal of China.
