When fall and winter arrive and temperatures drop, it is a great comfort to have a heating system to warm your home or office. Several categories of heating equipment exist to provide both primary and secondary heating. Primary heating systems include fuel gas/fuel oil/electric forced air furnaces, heat pumps, hydronic heating/steam systems and even wood-fired […]
Applications of SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Computational Fluid Dynamics Software to the Investigation of Fires
In his paper, John presents his recent work in validation of SOLIDWORKS CFD models compared to physical tests conducted in the Warren laboratory. This work demonstrates Warren’s capabilities in both computer modeling and physical testing of fire causation hypotheses as described in NFPA 921.
