Fire hypothesis
« on: December 12, 2018, 10:44:06 am »

Hello, how do I do Pyrosim to have several initial fire options? But run the fds with only one option.
I have a building model with 4 floors. One fire option is in the basement and the other option is on the third floor.
How do I have to do the 2 fds having only one file psm?

PyroSim does not provide any built in support for doing variations of the same problem with different initial conditions. One option that may help you out is the ability to disable certain parts of your model. If your fires are being represented as vents at a give location, you could create all the vents, right-click the ones you want to exclude, and select Disable Object(s) to stop the vent from being included in simulation.
