CFD FIRE & SMOKE MODELLING
Fire and smoke modelling provides a means to validate and test the performance of smoke control and management systems in atria and smoke spread in a building. Objective-Based and Performance-Based Codes allow for innovative designs and design flexibility provided the design can demonstrate the performance criteria of the respective standards such as National Construction Code of Australia, NFPA 101 Life Safety Code, NFPA 92 Standard for Smoke Control Systems, and UAE Fire and Life Safety Code of Practice. Fire and smoke modelling has also been used to support alternative solution design for the National Building Code of Canada, Ontario Building Code, Alberta Building Code, and British Columbia Building Code.
Vortex Fire has a team of specialists who work with clients and building officials to demonstrate compliance using engineering analysis, validations studies, and CFD studies. Our team of building code and fire safety engineering professionals has extensive knowledge in the use of fire engineering principles, smoke control and management principles, and life and fire safety principles. In addition, our team is well versed in the use of various cutting-edge fire and smoke simulation software to provide alternative solutions to the prescribed acceptable solutions in the Building Codes.
