Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has developed during the last decade and has become a standard tool in fire safety engineering. IFAB also provides various services that utilise CFD. IFAB has a massive fire test data base available from full scale tests, so it can in most cases verify the CFD models against experimental data. This sets IFAB apart from organisations that use CFD without validation. CFD services cover ventilation, evacuation, FFFS, temperature and heat transfer modelling.
