Fire, Smoke Movement and Explosions
FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization
Fire and smoke propagation represents a significant risk for public safety in buildings, tunnels and underground rail systems. Smoke management systems are critical life-saving devices, and their expected performance must be evaluated in the design stage. Fire suppression systems must also be understood and optimized.
Enteknograte offers a Virtual Engineering approach with CFD and FEA tools such as MSC Cradle, Ansys Fluent, Siemens Star-CCM+ for flows simulation and FEA based Codes such as ABAQUS, Ansys, Nastran and LS-Dyna, encompassing the accurate prediction of in-service loads, the performance evaluation, and the integrity assessment including the influence of manufacturing the components.
Material resistance to explosion, fire and extreme heat, as well as structural deterioration from catastrophic events, must be analyzed accurately. Simulating explosions and fire scenarios is an important stage of a performance-based design cycle. The results can demonstrate that smoke/fire management system designs maintain both safe conditions for occupants and the structural integrity of the building.
Enteknograte engineers participate in method development, advanced simulation work, software training and support. Over experiences in engineering consulting and design development enables Enteknograte’s engineering team to display strong/enormous client focus and engineering experience.
Contemporary design requirements associated with the protection of life and property often require consideration for blast effects resulting from either accidental or intentional explosions. Proper treatment of blast effects in structural systems requires specialized knowledge ranging from non-linear responses of structures to short-duration dynamic loading. Enteknograte’s Research engineers have extensive training and experience in managing all structural response considerations related to high-energy events, including blast design, explosion effects and mitigation, and finite clement modeling of blast events. Design and validation of structures against blast loads are important for modern society in order to protect and secure its citizen. Since it is a challenge to validate and optimise protective structures against blast loads using full-scale experimental tests, we have to turn our attention towards advanced numerical tools like the CFD and finite element method.
