Fire Dynamics Simulator and Smokeview - 3 days
Date: September 18-20, 2019
CEUs: Earn up to CEUs 2.1| PDHs 21

This three-day seminar is the combination of Intro for one day and the Advanced for two days.

Intro: TBD

Advanced is a hands-on seminar on techniques in using the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) modeling and Smokeview visualization software. The course is intended for current users of FDS who are comfortable creating simple FDS input files from scratch without assistance. The course consists of many short modules covering specific topics. Each module includes a lecture section and a workshop section in which the student works example problems on a personal laptop computer.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this seminar participants will be able to:

  • Complex geometry
  • HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) networks
  • Tracking gas species through the domain
  • Implementing pre and post-flashover fires
  • Pyrolysis modeling and flame spread
  • Advanced topics in combustion
  • Creating and removing obstructions
  • Smoke detectors and sprinklers
  • Grid transformations
  • Advanced Smokeview techniques: custom iso-surfaces, texture mapping, render files, and cad view
  • Basics of the Graphical User Interface program, PyroSim

Each student should have an understanding of fire dynamics, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics theory to gather the greatest understanding possible from the course. Each student should be able to develop FDS input files, develop design fire scenarios, and review FDS results using Smokeview without assistance.

Who Will Benefit
Experience Level Intermediate FPEs, Code Officials, Facility Engineers, Plan Reviewers, Design Professionals (Architects/Engineers)

Materials Needed
Attendees must bring s should have downloaded the most recent version of FDS and Smokeview software from the NIST website and make sure the programs run on their computer. The NIST website is Follow the links for software, fire simulation software, and the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator and Smokeview.

Participants will be assessed via a written exam upon completion of the seminar. A passing score of 70% will be required to obtain a Certificate of Completion.
