Verification and Validation of Fire Dynamic Simulator for Enclosed Car Park

Ahmad Faiz Tharima, Md Mujibur Rahman, and Mohd Zamri Yusoff
Abstract—When fire occurs, smoke is detrimental to human health and interrupts the evacuation process if it is not controlled properly. Due to the existence of beams in a building, smoke tends to stagnate near the obstacles and recirculates, further delaying the evacuation process. In the current study, Fire Dynamic Simulator (FDS) is employed as a numerical tool to simulate smoke propagation. The numerical result is then compared with the available experimental data obtained from the literature. It is found that the agreement between the numerical and experimental results is promising. From this study, it is shown that FDS can indeed be used to model the smoke propagation in an enclosed car park; hence, it can be utilised to generate other CFD models related to fire simulation.

Index Terms—FDS, Verification,Validation, Car Park.
