ENFP425

Enclosure Fire Modeling

Prerequisite: ENES232, ENFP300, and ENFP312. Restriction: Must be in Engineering: Fire Protection program; and senior standing; and permission of ENGR-Fire Protection Engineering department. An introduction to enclosure fire dynamics through the development of fire modeling algorithms and the application of computer-based fire modeling techniques. The objectives of the course are: to provide a basic understanding of enclosure fire dynamics with an emphasis on a system-level viewpoint (i.e., a global description of the coupling between combustion dynamics, smoke filling, vent flows and heat transfer); and to provide an introduction to the zone modeling approach. Topics covered include a review of the mathematical formulation of zone models, a discussion of numerical integration of the zone modeling equations (using MATLAB), and an introduction to zone modeling software used by professional engineers (e.g., CFAST).
