This course aims to provide an understanding of how fire modelling works and will provide participants with the knowledge of how to use fire modelling information effectively.

What is Fire Modelling?

Fire modelling is used primarily to predict the spread of smoke and heat from fires. BRE pioneered the original development and application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to create fire models that can when expertly used, be powerful design and safety tools.

CFD models predict smoke and heat movement in buildings of any design and, with the advent of performance-based codes, are increasingly used in fire safety engineering.

What is covered?

What is covered in this course?

  • Prescriptive, functional and performance-based approaches to meet fire safety requirements (Building Regulations B1 to B5).
  • Fire investigation – hypothesis testing
  • Design development
  • ‘Build and burn’ scale models and full-size reconstruction
  • Numerical models
  • Constructing a timeline
    • ASET – Available Safe Egress Time
    • RSET – Required Safe Egress Time

Intended audience

  • Building engineers, architects, fire safety engineers/consultancies and regulatory authorities

Having completed this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand how fire modelling works
  • Appreciate how fire modelling can be used to predict the progress of a fire
  • Use fire modelling information effectively

In our range of active and passive fire safety courses we also run fire door inspection courses, a foundation course in passive fire protection, an introduction to cladding and fire course, and you can find LPCB approved fire products on RedbookLive.
