Occupant smoke slowdown
« on: February 16, 2021, 07:30:47 am »


I wanted to clarify if in the latest Pathfinder version, the occupant walking speed slowdown to smoke (Fridolf correlation) is done automatically through importing of visibility data, or if we need to follow the below tutorial to manually associate each room with a correction factor computed based on the FDS data?

Thanks in advance!

No, that tutorial is old and the new automatic feature replaces that manual process.
