2nd Summer School on Fire Dynamics Modeling 2019

Group Photo Summer SchoolParticipants, lecturers and organisers of the summer school.

Over the last decades the demand for the modelling of fire dynamics grew significantly and the increasing complexity of the models makes them less accessible. This summer school aims to help fire safety engineers and scientists to gain a deeper understanding of the underlying theory and algorithms of fire modelling. Detailed theoretical discussions on the fundamental models are provided by some of the model developers themselves. The theoretical parts are then accompanied by practical exercises, mostly based on the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS). Besides the presentation of the models, scientific pre- and post-processing, with the publicly available programming language Python, is demonstrated. The participants have the possibility to use the JURECA supercomputer for the exercises during the summer school. Furthermore, discussion of validation methods completes the curriculum.

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 other users as well as model developers. 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.
