Abstract

The ATF conducted four identical compartment fire tests to observe the difference in fire conditions and resulting damage when varying the ignition location or initial ventilation conditions. Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) was applied to simulate the fire tests to determine the degree to which the fire conditions and resulting outcome from the tests could be replicated. The data measured during the experiments was analyzed against the results calculated by FDS and demonstrated reasonable agreement for certain scenarios.
