Assess fire risk, smarter
Fire engineering is so much more than prescriptive guidance. It offers protection to a building, its occupants and the surrounding community. And it begins with a fire risk assessment.
Complete yours smarter with FireSim. It’s a one-stop solution that brings together trusted computational models to simulate fire risk according to your unique site and surrounding environment.
Adapted simulation tools you can use
FireSim provides a complete solution that integrates trusted tools for fire risk assessments, from intermediate two-zone fire models and full CFD simulations to simple spreadsheets. Choose the level of detail and complexity based on your scenario. FireSim offers you the tools you need, and none you don’t. In return, you get complete demonstration results and all the documentation to prove it.
FireSim delivers detailed analysis of fire development in a defined space, including:
- Fire load collection and characterisation
- Time dependent fire temperature curves
- Heat fluxes relative to ventilation parameters
- Analysis of the consequences on the installations
- Characterisation of fire barriers and their ratings
- Assessment and design of sprinkler installations
- Optimum combination of safety measures
Simulations for installation
Once fire risks are identified, the challenge shifts to prevention and mitigation. FireSim delivers simulations for the installation of recommended technical solutions and the execution of procedural ones too. Models are based on standards for operational health and safety in your environment.
