Abstract

Numerical fire simulations are necessary for the design of fire safety concepts of complex buildings and facilities. Nevertheless, the use of this kind of simulation is limited in fire safety engineering practice. The main reason behind this limitation is the high computation power that it requires. This paper presents in general a comprehensive approach for configuration and deployment of a cloud system including a computer cluster for numerical fire simulations. This approach named “Fire in the Cloud” should make it easier to deal with fire simulations and should lead to more acceptance and daily use in fire safety engineering practice. Furthermore, this paper presents a series of simulation tests with our new cloud system to emphasize that – even with common computers in combination with parallel computing methods – a higher level of computation as well as a convenient infrastructure can be achieved.
