Advanced Fire Dynamic Simulator and Smokeview: Online Learning Seminar

Dates of Seminar: May: 4, 6, 8, 11, 13, 15, 18, 20, 22, 25, 27, 29; June- 1, 3, 5

Time: 11:00am - 12:30pm ET (GMT-4)

Presented by: Bryan Klein

Course Description: This course focuses on advanced 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.  

Course Objectives: Upon completion, the participant should understand

·         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.

 

Prerequisite:  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 

 

Before attending class students 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 http://www.bfrl.nist.gov.  Follow the links for software, fire simulation software, and the NIST Fire Dynamics Simulator and Smokeview.
