Over the last decades, modeling of fires became very popular in fire safety engineering and science. As the models evolve, they become more complex and therefore make it harder to understand the underlying principles as well as their application limits. This summer school is intended to educate students and researchers on the underlying theory and algorithms of fire modeling. The theoretical part is accompanied by practical exercises (mostly with FDS) with focus on the discussed models. Besides the presentation of models, scientific pre- and post-processing as well as validation methods are part of the agenda.
This school not only targets learning more about the underlying numerical models in common fire simulation software, like FDS, but also enables the participants to get in touch with model developers one on one. Since special emphasis is put on scientific work, the participants should have at least a Master’s degree in a suitable topic and a sound background in mathematics.
Date: 7. – 11. August 2017
Venue: Jülich Supercomputing Centre (Germany).
The school will be free of charge for the participants and their number is limited to approximately 30 persons.
