Abstract

Computational modelling of fire-structural response requires interoperability of various models describing different physical phenomena. Typically, the most advanced sub-models are found within independent simulation software incapable of interoperability. To address this issue, we have developed a tool for coupling two of such programs: Fire Dynamics Simulator and ABAQUS. We present the main features and theory behind the coupling approach and use an example case to demonstrate how a coupled fire-structural analysis is set up. We also discuss potential applications and present limitations of our approach.
