A Computing Infrastructure for Integrating Real-time Fire Data into Simulation and Visualization Software

Presented by Ann Jeffers, Associate Professor, University of Michigan

This presentation will provide firefighters with more information about the status of a fire event, a new computing infrastructure is under development at the University of Michigan. Through the use of existing and novel software packages, this study provides a new link between the scene of a fire event and the responding fire department. Specifically, it is envisioned that buildings will someday be instrumented with sensors that monitor key fire signatures such as gas temperature and species concentrations. The live stream of data would be transmitted wirelessly to a computing workstation that would interpret the fire data and communicate actionable information to firefighters via a building information model (BIM). The better understanding of the conditions within a building will enable informed decision-making that will lead to fewer deaths and property losses in structure fires. This presentation will showcase the current stage of development by using the new software with FDS-generated fire data in order to highlight some of the computational and visualization features that may someday be coupled with a live stream of fire data originating from an advanced sensor network.
