Hi Bryan. Thank you for your suggestion. It solves the problem of adding information. But it would be nice to be able to add the symbols I usually use for fire drawings, that way I can explain in my reports if there is special considerations (eg. blocked exits or pressurized staircases). Maybe it could be something that you consider for future releases.

Thank you Bryan for your help.
is it possible to include the rotation overtime in these data?

Yes, Pathfinder can output the positional data for each agent in the simulation, along with other useful information from each point in time written to file. Please see the User Manual for more information.

I am trying to export occupants positions overtime as csv, json, or txt to analysis them.
My current simulation only exports initials positions of occupants and how much time they took to exit. I need the positions for every second interval or close to that.
is that possible in Pathfinder?
Help is appreciated!

Hi Brian,
I had the same problem with zone errors.
I am working on a tunnel (400m length) with multimesh from an imported ifc file and I could not get FDS to run.
I turned the whole model into thick walls and it works.

Best regards,

I am following up on a post I found in this forum about future development of the elevator model. Are there plans to allow elevators to work in ingress mode as Pathfinder is increasingly used for purposes other than evacuation?

Thank you!

Dear all,
I am using pyrosim software to investigate the impact of fire in a room with wooden lining. I want to model the development of the smoke layer height.  

Setup: My room is 20x30x7 m, burner vent constant at 800 kW. Material is yellow pine, surface of the reaction allow obstruction to burn away, ignition temperature 225?C, HRRPUA=120kW/m2.

My problem: the production of soot from the burnable lining. The lining burns - it ignites and contributes to the total HRR. The total HRR rises to 2000 kW over 250 s, making the wooden surface contribute with 1200 kW compared to the reference case (concrete, without lining). Smoke view visualises a production of soot from the wooden surface. However, height measuring device's results show no significant contribution of soot. How can the soot yield for burnable surfaces be changed?
I have tried the "Species Injection" tab in the surface, but it seems to crash if soot yield is added in the respective settings (linked to a material).  Different room sizes have been tested and the trend is same.

Thanks in advance

I'm still a little new to the pyrosim software so sorry if I am making a beginner mistake with this question. I am a student who is trying to investigate the increase of danger (severity of fire and time to critical smoke layer height) by using wooden lining in a room in comparrison to non-burnable surfaces. I have an issue with the smoke/soot production of programming this burnable lining: I seem to have been able to program the lining to be burnable as it ignites after it heats and it contributes to the total HRR of the model (Burner vent is constant at 800 kW and with the wooden surface, the total HRR rises to 2000 kW over 250 s, making the wooden surface contribute with 1200 kW). And in smoke view, the wooden surface seems to burn and produce smoke. All of this seems great.
My problem starts when my layer height measuring device's results does not seem differ significantly from a room without a burnable lining. My sample room is 20x30x7 m and the time to critical smoke layer height in the room with no burnable surface is 322 s, and with the burnable surface is 318 s. A little less of an increase than what I would expect. It has to be said that I have tried different room sizes and the trend seems the same.
I see that I haven't been able to give my surface a soot yield coefficient, I have just linked it to a material of "yellow pine", and given the surface the reaction of being burnable with an ignition temperature and a HRRPUA. Is there anywhere I should insert the soot yield for this burnable surface? I have tried the "Species Injection" tab in the surface, but it seems to crash if I put a soot yield in those spaces while it is linked to a material. What should my approach be if I want a more accurate meassurement?

I have read a post about the smoke layer zoning device not being all that reliable, and other critical condition should be considered instead. Is this an area where I have overestimated the capabilites of this too?,2371.msg3731.html?fbclid=IwAR3tzdQG1dbh1ACaZGrOxB4cxuRILdL-baZPiMByTcFDCmkDaK0U3p5lc4E#msg3731

Thanks in advance

Learn the top tips techniques, tricks, and Madden 22 coins strategies for launching Madden Ultimate Team mode in Madden NFL 22. More commonly known as "MUT," Madden Ultimate Team is Madden NFL's distinctive gaming experience , which combines the best aspects of football and gaming. If you're new or unfamiliar to the series, MUT is essentially the version for gamers of Fantasy Football, packed with collection challenges, solo challenges of multiplayer games, head-to head multiplayer, and many more.

This guide will direct newbies as well as veterans in the right direction when starting, and the best places they can expand out.

Madden Ultimate Team begins with single-player challenges from the beginning as a gentle introduction of how they work and the rewards they provide. Once the MUT menu is accessible, categories for activities to do are split into five different tabs namely Play, Missions, Marketplace, My Team and Competitive.

Each tab has a range of activities and tasks, making sure that you study the descriptions thoroughly and check out each one. The Play tab is the one to use first. This is where Madden NFL 22 features, including Player Challenges, Solo Battlesand Head-to Head Season content are along with other items like MUT Champions, Squads, as well as Draft.

The two Challenges and Solo Battles are going to be the main means to earn coins in Madden NFL 22. After having completed the introduction Challenges and Solo Battles, the next thing to be concerned about is finishing the Ultimate Team campaign and buy Madden nfl 22 coins Gridiron Forge challenges.
