This course is an introduction into the theory and to the concepts and models within FLACS-Fire. It will focus on the FLACS-Fire modelling capabilities, including jet fire, pool fire, “solid flame” and radiations models. This course combines both theory and practical exercises with FLACS-Fire software; therefore, students will be required to practice and apply their new knowledge of the software through extensive hands-on workshops. About half the time will consist of presentations and the will rest be hands-on with the FLACS-Fire software.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to use FLACS-Fire for setting up, running and extracting results for a basic range of typical jet and pool fire scenarios in order to address; Passive Fire Protection (PFP) optimization, flare studies, escape route impairment (heat, smoke, toxic, visibility), vessel heat up modelling, risk based fire modelling, fire and smoke detection, accident investigation, visualisation, hazard awareness, training… They will have learned the FLACS-Fire user guidelines for defining scenarios to ensure accurate and validated results and be able to QA results.
People who intend to carry out consequence modelling with FLACS-Fire or work closely together people performing these types of FLACS-Fire simulations. These include safety engineers and consultants in risk consultancy companies, oil & gas and process industries, regulatory bodies, engineering companies, nuclear industry and many more. The course could potentially also be useful for structural and process engineers as these disciplines often provide either important input (e.g. anticipated congestion levels and process parameters) or use the output (e.g. radiative and total heat flux, toxic- , soot- and smoke concentrations) of the FLACS-Fire studies, by providing a better understanding of the most relevant parameters and mechanisms. Attendance of this course is mandatory for FLACS-Fire users.
This course is suitable existing users of FLACS as well as users who would like to refresh their knowledge. Prerequisites are required on FLACS dispersion modelling and any prior knowledge in safety consequence modelling, CFD models or 3D modelling will in general be helpful.
