Fire and Smoke Modelling
Large and complex projects often benefit from more detailed fire modelling to support value engineered design solutions or justify certain aspects of the design such as smoke modelling to demonstrate the acceptability of extended travel distances or as part of a timeline analysis for evacuation.
Our fire engineers are fully acquainted with and proficient in the use of a range of fire and evacuation models, including NIST FDS Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), PyroSIM, CFAST, FPETool, ASKFRS, ASKHPM, ASMET and CCFM. MJP have also developed a range of fully validated in house fire and smoke modelling programs for use in projects where higher order fire engineering design solutions are required to demonstrate compliance with fire and life safety objectives.
MJP have used NIST FDS Computational Fluid Dynamics on a number of large and complex projects including the Midlands Prison Cell Block Extension, Mountjoy Prison, Kelly’s Resort Hotel and Spa, HSE North East Nursing Home, Google EMEA HQ and Carlow IT Innovation and Research Building.
