Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

Numerical fire simulations (in terms of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)) are becoming increasingly pervasive in fire safety analysis, because they offer many benefits beyond those offered by traditional methods. Nevertheless, such simulations are time-consuming and require a relatively large amount of computation power for use in engineering applications. Therefore, compared to other methods, the use of numerical fire simulations for construction projects is not as common as it should be given their benefits. Moreover, the results of a fire safety analysis affect the different parties of a project, such as the architects, structural engineers, or project managers. While these parties are usually unfamiliar with numerical fire simulations, they require easy access to the results of such simulations, which are usually conducted by a fire safety engineer. These aspects have led us to the present research on the development of new IT solutions for convenient deployment of numerical fire simulations, including suitable data preparation and data transmissions. This paper presents a novel distributed cloud-computing infrastructure to simplify the use of the numerical fire simulations for construction projects and encourage “fire safety teamwork” among the different parties involved in a project. Using this cloud system, clients can carry out numerical fire simulations on their own regardless of their location or device. The simulation module described herein runs on a computer cluster in order to increase the system performance.
