Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Discover how fire dynamics can be modeled and analyzed using Autodesk CFD
  • Learn how to highlight key results from Autodesk CFD for life-safety assessment in a building of large and complex geometry
  • Draw important conclusions and valuable recommendations to minimize smoke hazards
  • Look for potential insight to optimize smoke exhaust system design and layout by analyzing different fire scenarios

Description

Description

This class will cover the use of Autodesk CFD software as a design analysis tool to provide an effective, engineered smoke-control strategy for a shopping mall of large and complex geometry. We'll examine how fire dynamics were modeled and how important aspects such as smoke propagation and temperature distribution were investigated. The participants will learn about smoke movement in far greater detail than is possible through traditional design tools, such as zone models and algebraic equations, and we'll cover the impact of irregular shapes and unusual air movements that could not be addressed otherwise. We'll demonstrate how we can design the smoke exhaust systems to maintain a prescribed smoke-layer height, tenable temperature, and smoke visibility; and how we can optimize the volume of smoke to be exhausted to meet life-safety goals. Based on the Autodesk CFD results, we'll show how we can draw important conclusions and introduce valuable recommendations to minimize smoke hazards.
