FEMTC 2016: Circulation, Ingress, and More

September 13, 2016
Circulation movement is often a critical part of the analysis for high occupancy areas with lots of foot traffic. As research and technology improves, engineers are adding non-evacuation investigations to their résumés. Jennifer Wiley, a Fire Protection Engineer at Jensen Hughes, will discuss these other uses for people movement models at the Fire and Evacuation Technical Modeling Conference (FEMTC).  Read More...

New Visualization for Fire, Smoke, and More

September 7, 2016
We are currently developing new visualization for many fire and smoke effects that are needed for both fire and evacuation modeling. Much of this is driven by a need to integrate evacuation results with fire and smoke visualization, along with other representations of FDS data. The intention is to provide an alternative to Smokeview for PyroSim as well as all new capability for Pathfinder. We are aiming to deliver easy to use camera manipulation, high frame rate visuals, and video capture with many options among other features.  Read More...
