During spring 2017 the Division of Fire Safety Engineering, Lund University, will organise a course in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for room fires. The course is given primarily as a distance learning course in combination with two seminars, the first one between January 19 to 20 and second one between April 6 to 7. Participation for external students to at least one seminar is recommended, preferably the first seminar.
The use of CFD to simulate fires in enclosures has increased and gained importance in recent years. CFD for enclosure fires has a wide variety of application, including fire investigation and performance based design.
The course is designed to provide knowledge of how the spread of fire and combustion gases is simulated using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), in fire safety design and fire investigations. It also provides an understanding of the limitations of the numerical and physical models used, and an awareness of the most common sources of error.
