|Title:||Smokeview (Version 6) - A Tool for Visualizing Fire Dynamics Simulation Data Volume III: Verification Guide|
|Published:||August 26, 2013|
|Abstract:||Smokeview is a software tool designed to visualize numerical calculations generated by fire models such as the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of fire-driven fluid flow or the Consolidated Fire and Smokeview Transport (CFAST) model, a zone fire model. This Guide is Volume 3 of the Smokeview Reference Guides. This guide presents a series of images derived from FDS and Smokeview. The intent is to to verify that the algorithms used by Smokeview for visualizing data are implemented correctly. These images are generated automatically through the use of scripts by first running FDS on a series of input cases and then running Smokeview, again using a set of scripts. The correctness of Smokeview may then be verified more easily as FDS and Smokeview are updated since the reference figures in this document may be generated simply and automatically. Smokeview and associated documentation for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X may be downloaded from http://fire.nist.gov/fds . i|
