Thunderhead Engineering solutions for Fire simulation.

PyroSim is a graphical user interface for the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS). PyroSim helps you quickly create and manage the details of complex fire models.

PyroSim imports AutoCAD DXF and DWG files. When PyroSim imports a DWG/DXF file, it will treat all 3D face data as obstructions and all other data (lines, curves, etc.) as separate CAD data. The left image of the figure shows the DWG file face data and the right image shows the grid representation that will be used in the FDS analysis.

PyroSim includes tools to help you create and validate multiple meshes.

PyroSim includes support to launch a parallel simulation using MPI. For a single machine with multiple cores or CPUs, parallel processing is an integrated tool and all details are managed for you.

Import CAD Models

PyroSim imports AutoCAD DXF and DWG files. When PyroSim imports a DWG/DXF file, it will treat all 3D face data as obstructions and all other data (lines, curves, etc.) as separate CAD data. The left image of the figure shows the DWG file face data and the right image shows the grid representation that will be used in the FDS analysis.

Alternately, a drawing in GIF, JPG, or PNG format can be imported and then used as a background to help you rapidly draw your model directly over the image.

In Pyrosim you can create meshes, manage input for simulation, run FDS and process results.
