Flame Spread Modelling Using FDS4 CFD model
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2007)
This thesis examines the prediction of opposed flow flame spread in the Fire Dynamics Simulator version 4 (FDS4) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model by adapting the Lateral Ignition Flame Transport (LIFT) test ...
Determining Realistic Loss Estimates for Rack Storage Warehouse Fires
(University of Canterbury. Civil Engineering, 2006)
At present there is no simple, yet scientifically robust method for calculating insurance loss estimates due to a fire. Therefore building owners and insurers can not make suitably informed decisions when selecting fire ...
Limitations of Zone Models and CFD Models for Natural Smoke Filling in Large Spaces
(University of Canterbury. Department of Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)
This research report examines the use of zone modelling compared with CFD modelling to determine when zone model approximation is valid and when a CFD model might be required. A series of computer simulations with enclosures ...
Maintaining Fire-fighter Tenability in Unsprinklered Single-storey Industrial Buildings using Roof Venting
(University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2012)
Roof venting is often utilised in large warehouses to remove smoke in order to reduce damage to a building and its contents, and to maintain access for fire-fighters. In New Zealand, the Compliance Document for the New ...
