Fire and Smoke Modelling

Fire and smoke modelling is the application of CFD to the problems of detecting fires and predicting their potential spread. Dynamic models are built for analysis of various fire scenarios, most commonly to assist in laying out adequate fire detection systems. Smoke and toxin density and movement, as well as temperature rise, are all predicted.
 
Fire suppression systems can also be modelled, and in conjunction with evacuation simulations, can ensure efficient and effective protection of property and preservation of life.

Smoke Comparison - A comparison of the smoke from two fires of equal size, but different intensities. It’s not immediately clear in the image, but the data shows that the higher intensity fire’s smoke rises faster, and will therefore be detected sooner than the lower intensity fire of the same size.
