Window breakage
« on: December 15, 2015, 11:04:34 pm »

I am experiencing issues with regards a number of internal windows that are expected to break at flashover.

I have set the heat detectors and controls up as previously detailed inn this forum but my issue is that smoke can be seen to travel though the window from the beginning of the model.

Any ideas what the issues may be?

Kind Regards


Charlie Thornton

There was a bug in FDS a few versions ago that caused something along those lines - relating to add/remove obstruction logic. What version of PyroSim are you using?

EDIT: This bug: That doesn't quite sound like your issue though.
