PyroSim / Tenability within Means of Escape
« on: November 11, 2018, 12:38:08 pm »
I have a scenario where I am trying to measure the radiative heat transfer and subsequent tenability within an open plan apartment and the relationship between cooking facilities and the means of escape.

I have inserted a slice file within Pyrosim which measures radiation loss however the units at Kw/m3 and not Kw/m2 therefore perhaps I am measuring the wrong parameter.

I am considering using a hand calculation where:

q=Stefan-boltzman constant x T(absolute temp in Kelvin) x A (area of emitting body)

Would the forum agree this is the correct formula or is there another formula to prove that the radiative heat does not exceed 2.5Kw/m2?

If anyone has used this formula, is the temperature measured at the source of at the various points along the MoE?

PyroSim / Door & Window Leakage
« on: September 11, 2017, 05:08:33 am »
I want to simulate leakage through a door. I am currently using a 200 x 200 x 200 mesh due to the size of area being analysed.
I do recall there was a way to do this however it has been sometime since I used pyrosim.
many thanks.

PyroSim / Rendering an image
« on: April 29, 2016, 11:28:01 am »
I am trying to grab a picture in Smokeview which I understand is called rendering.
I am using pyrosim on a trial basis - is there something that stops me from rendering a picture during the trial??
Is there any other way I can grab an image from Smokeview?
