Improving Fire Safety Through Simulation and Modelling 2024

Improving Fire Safety Through Simulation and Modelling 2024




Hazards can occur in all environments; protection against the risks of fire, smoke and detonation must be understood to ensure safety in design. Fire modelling is an essential tool for mechanical engineers to effectively manage this risk.

Building on 2022's popular event, this seminar will cover the work of mechanical engineers to model fire across a range of disciplines and application areas. Whether it be the modelling of active smoke control systems and escape routes in a post-Grenfell era or monitoring the increasing numbers of EVs and associated thermal runaway risks, understanding the computational methods of modelling is essential.

Multiple types of fires can occur which challenges engineers to offer different solutions depending on the context of the environment, cause of ignition and types of materials interacting with heat. Attendees will gain a clear understanding of which tools, software and development platforms are the most effective in individual, real world scenarios will allow them to come away from the seminar with greater practical awareness of fire modelling best practice.


- Gain a greater understanding of the methodologies surrounding evacuation modelling, smoke modelling, gas dispersion modelling and pre-incident planning
- Hear about the work of engineers tackling the challenges of EV battery fires
- Understand how to best ensure building safety and the role accurate modelling has to play in structural integrity and material selection
- Benchmark your processes against industry leaders to ensure best practice
- Network with key engineers and companies working to introduce new, enhanced methods of modelling and gain new understanding of best practice with currently used software
