Modelling of Structures in Fire: An Example of the Boundary Condition
(GRUPO GIDAI, Universidad de Cantabria (Spain), 2004-10)
The collapse of the World Trade Center Towers 1, 2 and 7 on September 11th 2001 has highlighted the need for proper understanding of the behaviour of structures in the event of a fire. A detailed analysis of the fires and ...
Experimental Data and Numerical Modelling of 1.3 and 2.3 MW Fires in a 20 m Cubic Atrium
(journal Building and Environment - Elsevier, 2008-12-12)
Atria and large spaces are common architectonical features in modern buildings such as high rises, auditoria, warehouses, airports and mass transport stations among others. There is currently an international trend towards ...
Calculation and design of tunnel ventilation systems using a two-scale modelling approach
(Building and Environment journal - Elservier, 2009-06)
This paper develops a novel modelling approach for ventilation flow in tunnels at ambient conditions (i.e. cold flow). The complexity of full CFD models of low in tunnels or the inaccuracies of simplistic assumptions are ...
FIRESTRUC - Integrating advanced three-dimensional modelling methodologies for predicting thermo-mechanical behaviour of steel and composite structures subjected to natural fires
(The International Assocation of Fire Safety Science (IAFSS), 2008-09)
A hierarchy of coupling strategies for integrating advanced three-dimensional modelling methodologies for prediction of the thermo-mechanical response of structures in fire has been developed and systematically assessed. ...
Tunnel ventilation effectiveness in fire scenarios
(FS-World Magazine, 2010)
Throughout most of a tunnel network the ventilation behaviour may be approximated with a simple 1D flow model. However, there are some important - but relatively small - regions of the tunnel that require CFD analysis. The ...
Round-robin study of a priori modelling predictions of the Dalmarnock Fire Test One
(Fire SafetyJournal - Elsevier, 2009-03)
An international study of fire modelling was conducted prior to the Dalmarnock Fire Test One in order to assess the state-of-the-art of fire simulations using a round-robin approach. This test forms part of the Dalmarnock ...
