Fire Dynamics Simulator with Evacuation: FDS+Evac: Technical Reference and User's Guide

Timo Korhonen, Simo Hostikka

    Research output: Book/ReportReport

    Abstract

    This document describes how to simulate human egress using the evacuation module, FDS+Evac, which is fully embedded in Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS). This manual applies to the FDS+Evac version is 2.1.1, which is embedded in the current FDS version 5.3.0. The most up to date version of this manual can be obtained from the FDS+Evac home page at http://www.vtt.fi/fdsevac/. The FDS+Evac Technical Reference and User's Guide does not contain information on how to operate FDS nor Smokeview, the companion visualisation programme for FDS. Their full capabilities are described in their documentation, which can be obtained from the FDS-SMV home page http://fire.nist.gov/fds/.
