CFD Fire Modelling
Warringtonfire offers a variety of innovative fire consultancy services, working with architects, designers, and approval authorities to create the optimized fire safety strategies. One of the tools we use is Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) fire modelling.
Fire modelling is a key tool when trying to predict the spread of smoke and heat from fires in built environments and when used correctly can be a powerful design and safety tool.
When a building burns often the smoke inhalation or heat transfer can be more hazardous than the movement of the flames, so it is important to assess how this may occur in the event of a fire. This can then influence means of escape planning and the design of passive and active fire systems.
CFD fire modelling looks to solve equations describing the fluid flow and heat transfer from the growth and spread of fire. They predict smoke and heat movement in buildings of any design and is a key tool in fire engineering.
Why use us for CFD Fire Modelling?
Using the most advanced software and technology we create a replica model of your project to graphically and numerically map the spread of flames, heat and smoke which we then use to create the most efficient fire strategy for your building, in accordance with the relevant statutory requirements and other fire safety objectives.
CFD fire modelling can be a powerful tool but only when used correctly. Warringtonfire employs experts in CFD fire modelling who use their many years of wide experience to competently utilize the CFD fire modelling to predict potential fire behavior and development.
Other Analysis and Assessment Services
CFD Fire Modelling
Solve equations regarding fluid flow and heat transfer from the growth and spread of fire.
Fire Safety Strategy
A fire strategy is the way in which fire safety objectives for a new, altered or existing building are defined and achieved. Warringtonfire’s experienced team of fire safety engineers and consultants in Australia will create the best strategy for your project.
At Warringtonfire, we use a performance-based approach to customise a package of alternative fire safety measures for a design – allowing our clients to achieve their objectives but still maintain the level of fire safety required by the building code and approval authorities.
Fire Evacuation Modelling
Latest technology for fire evacuation modelling in order to create an economical and robust solution.
Radiant Heat Transfer Modelling
Radiant heat transfer modelling is a key tool that the fire safety engineers at Warringtonfire use when trying to predict the expected radiant heat transfer from fires to the surroundings and between buildings.
Fire Brigade Intervention Modelling
We can quantify firefighting activities in our fire engineering assessments by using the fire brigade intervention model (FBIM). The FBIM predicts the time taken by a fire brigade to undertake its activities at the fire scene from time of notification through to control and extinguishment.
Fire Risk Assessment
Key fire safety disciplines enables us to provide the most comprehensive and insightful fire risk assessment.
Cladding Risk Assessment
Warringtonfire Australia has a team of accredited fire safety engineers who can conduct combustible cladding risk assessments for a range of projects.
Fire assessments are reports provided when a modification is made to a construction that has already been fire tested.
