Summer School on Fire Dynamics Modeling 2017

Jülich Supercomputing Centre

Over the last decades, modeling of fires became very popular in fire safety engineering and science. As the models evolve, they become more complex and therefore make it harder to understand the underlying principles as well as their application limits. This summer school is intended to educate students and researchers on the underlying theory and algorithms of fire modeling. The theoretical part is accompanied by practical exercises (mostly with FDS) with focus on the discussed models. Besides the presentation of models, scientific pre- and post-processing as well as validation methods are part of the agenda.

This school not only targets learning more about the underlying numerical models in common fire simulation software, like FDS, but also enables the participants to get in touch with model developers one on one. Since special emphasis is put on scientific work, the participants should have at least a Master’s degree in a suitable topic and a sound background in mathematics.


  • Date: 7. – 11. August 2017
  • Venue: Jülich Supercomputing Centre (Germany).
  • The school will be free of charge for the participants and their number is limited to approximately 30 persons.
  • Travel and accommodation costs have to be covered by the participants themselves.

Application Procedure

To apply for participation, please consider that if there are more applicants than available seats, we will have to apply a selection criterion. This will be mainly based on the expected benefit for the applicants (research) work. Therefore, we ask you to follow this application procedure:

  • Send an email to before 9th June 2017.
  • Include the following information (plain text, PDF file with just basic formatting)

    • Name, gender, nationality
    • Contact details: email, phone number
    • Current institution (university / company)
    • Current research / engineering project
    • Short CV
  • All of the above information will be handled confidentially. The information on the research project and the CV just will be used for the selection process.
  • A participation confirmation will be send out to you until the 18th June 2017 including further information.
