Fire modelling is used primarily to predict the speed of smoke and heat from fires. BRE pioneered the original development and application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to create fire models that can when expertly used, be powerful design and safety tools.
CFD models predict smoke and heat movement in buildings of any design and, with the advent of performance-based codes, are increasingly used in fire safety engineering.
The learning objectives of this online course are:
Understand how fire modelling works
Appreciate how fire modelling can be used to predict the progress of a fire
Use fire modelling information effectively
The course covers:
Prescriptive, functional and performance-based approaches to meet fire safety requirements (Building Regulations B1 to B5)
Fire investigation – hypothesis testing
'Build and burn' scale models and full-size reconstruction
Constructing a timeline
ASET – Available Safe Egress Time
RSET – Required Safe Egress Time
This course is aimed at building engineers, designers, fire safety engineers/consultancies and regulatory authorities.
