Example of Application for the Parallel Usage of FDS on a HPC System

In cooperation with C. Paschen, insa4

  • Fire growth in rail vehicles and smoke spread in stations
  • Modeling of combustion (characteristic fire values are given by data base or are determined by fire behavior tests)
  • Simulation on JUMP (typical job size 108 cells, 48 h, 32 CPU′s)

Calculated heat release rate (HRR) of the rail vehicle
