Equipment and appliances supplied with fuel gases like natural gas, propane and butane are a common and convenient part of most of our lives. Such devices as gas grills and ranges, ovens, furnaces, space heaters and water heaters usually perform without incident. However, when they malfunction the potential for incidents such as fires and explosions, […]
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.
