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.

► 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 ...
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
Without adequate controls in place, dust in underground coal mines can be an explosion hazard. This video shows a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation of a methane-initiated coal dust explosion and water suppression in Kloppersbos 200m tunnel in South Africa. Simulation was performed using Openfoam CFD software and specially developed algorithms on a 128 processor machine. Coal dust is colored by temperature. Water is shown in liquid phase only. Simulations of alternative scenarios of stone dust and coal dust loadings, as well as initial methane explosion strength, are possible. This is "moving camera" view with the open-end of the 200m tunnel being clear at the end of the video. See also http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNmRrQQUi9k BMT WBM - www.bmtwbm.com.au SkillPro - w...
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).
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).
