PyroSim / Pyrosim modelling query
« on: May 20, 2019, 06:15:03 am »

I have modelled a building with an atrium. The aim of the model is to produce smoke which rises above the atrium, but there are a few errors with my modelling on Pyrosim.

I've attached the FDS coding for this.

How do I move the OPEN VENTs to the mesh boundaries?

PyroSim / Building containing an atrium - no results in Pyrosim
« on: May 19, 2019, 12:25:41 pm »

I have just modelled a building containing an atrium which is meant to generate smoke when viewed in SmokeView. I just opened Pyrosim and SmokeView, but nothing appears.

I've attached a screenshot of the model in Pyrosim.

Does anybody know what this means?

PyroSim / Pyrosim burner
« on: May 16, 2019, 07:39:42 am »

I'm modelling a building with an atrium. The atrium is 12m in length, 15m in width, and 9m in height. Height of each floor is 3m. There are 1.6 m wide walkways around the atrium at 3m and 6m high levels.

The fire needs to be medium-type of 2.5Mw (2500Kw), how would you calculate the HRRPUA ,please?

Okay, thanks for letting me know.

PyroSim / Pyrosim soot yield(s)
« on: May 08, 2019, 07:05:47 am »
I am trying to model a room fire in Pyrosim and want to change the soot yield.

Does anybody know how to set a soot yield to 0.2 kg/kg?



PyroSim / Pyrosim object error

I am running a model in Pyrosim, but it won't simulate. the following error message appears: 'Could not load results. File does not exist: C/Program Files/Pyrosim2018\/fds/objects.svo

Can anyone help?

Yes, I understand. Thank you. I will read the relevant sections of the Pyrosim guide to help me. To answer your question, it is for an assignment.

A further question;

How many sprinklers do you need to insert into a room fire model? Should you put one around each side of a room?

Okay, thank you for letting me know. I am running design fires. I've been asked to make a sprinkler controlled fire specified by the heat release rate and TAU_Q i.e. a t-squared fire.

In the first design fire, there is an open door which is 1m wide and 2m high in one of the walls within a room fire.

Does anyone know how to run a sprinkler-controlled fire on Pyrosim, please?

Once you have modelled a fire using Pyrosim, how do you access the psm file (which includes fds input script)?
