Computational tools have been developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for modeling fire spread and smoke transport. These models include FDS (Fire Dynamics Simulator) for modeling fire spread and smoke transport and Smokeview for visualizing the resulting fire dynamics. This article will give an overview of many of the features and techniques one can use with Smokeview to better understand fire dynamics. Modeling is especially useful where other methods of study such as experimentation are not practical or too dangerous to conduct.
