4.2. Fire Modeling

CFD simulation of fire incidents (e.g., large-scale jet fire and pool fire) will provide information about the flow field and characteristics of the incident fires, especially in terms of hazards associated with fire events. In the context of process safety, these two incidents are associated with large-scale releases of flammable materials in gas or liquid phases because of loss of primary containment events in industrial settings. Other types of fires such as compartmental fires (e.g., in residential or office buildings or industrial facilities), large-scale fires (e.g., forest fires), and deliberated fire activities (e.g., flare fires or fires in combustion chambers) have been covered extensively in published literature ...
