Occupants do not slowed down by the smoke
« on: August 13, 2020, 12:00:36 pm »

Hi everyone,

I am importing a Pyrosim file into pathfinder including high-intensity fire and smoke. The occupant's speed before the spread of smoke and in the smoke is the same. The smoke view file in simulation parameters is all set. Do you know what are the parameters influencing the impact of smoke on agents' speed?
The only guess I have is that my Pathfinder software is the last version and updated (2020.3.0729), although the Pyrosim file version is 2020.2.0527. Could it be the reason the agents are not slowed down?
I really appreciate your help.
Thank you.

Please see these sections in the PyroSim and Pathfinder manuals.

To have PyroSim output the data Pathfinder needs:

To have Pathfinder use that data during the simulation.
