http://www.thunderheadeng.com/pyrosim/ A Performing Arts Center Revit model made by Brandon Lambrecht, our architecture student intern, that provides the starting geometry for the PyroSim model. After the geometry is imported into PyroSim, all necessary input and output parameters are defined through an easy to use interface. From PyroSim the FDS simulation can be started with a click of a button, and the results can be viewed in 2D data plots, or with 3D visualization in Smokeview, also a button click away.
Simo Hostikka, Aalto University, Finland - FEMTC 2016 Post: http://www.thunderheadeng.com/2017/08/d2-01-hostikka/ In this work, we wanted to study how the construction trends aiming at energy efficient and high-rise buildings are changing the fire modelling practices. Through experiments, FDS validation and a simulation case-study, we investigate the reliability and modelling practices of the mechanical ventilation systems and air-tight building envelopes. The simulation results indicate that the new, very air-tight building envelopes can pose a risk for both occupant and structural safety in fires.

Part 1 in a 3 part series covering how to create a photo-realistic fire hydrant using Blender and Substance Painter. This is an intermediate walkthrough; there's an expectation that you know the basics of the Blender interface and modelling. You should know how to get around in Blender, and the hotkeys for the most common tasks like box/loop selecting and extruding before going through with this tutorial. This tutorial just gives a general overview for hard-surface modelling techniques and introduces some tools you might not be aware that Blender has; it's not meant for you to follow button-press by button-press. Based on the first project I felt worthy of opening an Artstation account for: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/1X8PX (Please Excuse the Audio; I forgot to compress down to...

In this webinar case study, Mark Wu of Imperial College presents his MassMotion evaluation of the current fire evacuation plan for London’s Dartford Tunnel. In particular he will looked at: • The validation of MassMotion against the existing evacuation case studies of the Benelux Tunnel in The Netherlands • How MassMotion was used to simulate the evacuation of the Dartford Tunnel • The results and implications of this study on fire safety Read the original webinar posting here: http://www.oasys-software.com/webinar/webinar/Fire_Evacuation_modelling_of_the_Dartford_Tunnel
► Download Project: https://www.voxyde.com/content/fire-dragon-intro-tutorial/ --- INFO --- The first part of a 3 part-series tutorial where I show you how to create an Epic Fire Dragon Intro from start to finish. This part includes the modelling part. We will later use this model to generate flames, particles and render it out. There are many ways to go about modelling this dragon. The method I use in this tutorial is called polygonal modelling. I'm also implementing some sculpting methods to help shape the object faster. I'll update the description with all the shortcuts I use. --- TOOLS --- Software : Cinema 4D R16 Plug-ins : None Level : Intermediate --- SOCIAL --- ► Facebook: http://facebook.com/voxyde ► Twitter: http://twitter.com/voxyde2 ► Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/voxyde ...
The third in a series of development diary videos from Playing with Fire Simulations, showing new content made for VBS2. In this video we see our experiments with deformable zoned crash damage on vehicles. All content is work in progress and doesn't represent the finished product. All content is for our multi-agency training simulator (MATS).

Fire models for Tasmania currently use Victorian data. With the different fuel types, the modelling is not as good as it could be. PhD student James Furlaud (University of Tasmania) is gathering the data required to improve bushfire modelling for Tasmania.

Simulation analysis of a large scale gas release on an offshore platform and the subsequently ensuing fire was conducted to determine the size of the fire ball and the resulting heat load distribution on the surrounding structure. The animation shows flammability limits (yellow) and the fire related reaction region (red). The initial release dispersion process was simulated for 2 min prior the ignition. In this time, 1.5 tonnes of natural gas was continuously released to the environment. The ignition sequence was introduced to the model to initiate rapidly developing deflagration. To simulate the propagating fire front, Burning Velocity Model (BVM) was utilized. The local combustion reaction speed was determined with the Flamelet model (more @ www.caspus.co.uk).
Two firefighters died from injuries sustained while fighting a June 2, 2011, fire in a multi-story, single-family dwelling in San Francisco. NIST used its Fire Dynamics Simulator and visualization software to investigate the circumstances and fire behavior that led to untenable conditions on the first floor, where the downed firefighters were found. After failure of windows in the basement, where the fire began, an adjoining stairway became a “chimney for hot gases” that poured onto the first floor. For more, read the NIST study report (NIST TN 1856).

buildingEXODUS V4.0 simulation of the Rhode Island nightclub fire. The fire conditions are predicted using SMARTFIRE V4.1. The simulation predicts evacuation through available doors and windows. A number of people perish in this simulation due to the rapidly developing fire. The colour coding of the people indicates the response time band for the occupants. The people coloured red reacted most rapidly, they are on the dance floor. The colour of the floor is an indication of the smoke concentration at head height. The darker the colour, the thicker the smoke at head height. Finally, the body markings on the floor represents where we predict a fatality occured - The animation was generated in 2008
