Pyrosim + Evac (stairs)
« on: December 10, 2018, 09:05:32 am »

Hello, my name is Ana. I'm learning Pyrosim.
I do not know how to create stairs in pyrosim for evacuation.
How many doors should be placed in the model of the photo?
I am with the Pyrosim manual but it does not contain information regarding the evacuation and stairs part. Where is there a tutorial?
I add an image of the model, they are 2 plants.
Thank you

Jon Albrecht

Unfortunately PyroSim does not directly support the use of FDS+Evac. If you want to use evacuation features with PyroSim, you can do this by taking advantage of both the Advanced section in dialogs, which allows you to add custom fields to a given record, and the Additional Records section, which allows you to input whatever you'd like and have it appear on the FDS input file.

If you are in need of guidance in regards to the use of FDS+Evac, the user manual can be found online. The best source of support in regards to that tool will likely be the FDS support group.!forum/fds-smv

It was worth mentioning however that the FDS development team no longer provides explicit support for the evacuation module, and has discussed removing it from future versions of the simulator. If you are interested in other evacuation tools that are undergoing active development, take a look at our website to learn more about Pathfinder, Thunderhead Engineering's evacuation simulator.
