Abstract:

A mixture fraction based combustion model and a finite volume radiation transport model have been added to the Fire Dynamics Simulator v1.0 (FDS) developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Computations of three propane fire experiments in a one-half scale ISO 9705 compartment are made with the new models. The computational results are compared to data collected at the Virginia Tech Fire Research Laboratory (VTFRL).
