CFAST

CFAST

The Consolidated Model of Fire and Smoke Transport, CFAST, is a computer program that fire investigators, safety officials, engineers, architects and builders can use to simulate the impact of past or potential fires and smoke in a specific building environment. CFAST is a two-zone fire model used to calculate the evolving distribution of smoke, fire gases and temperature throughout compartments of a building during a fire.

TThe CFAST package includes NIST's Smokeview program, which visualizes with colored, three-dimensional animations the results of the CFAST simulation of a specific fire's temperatures, various gas concentrations and growth and movement of smoke layers across multi-room structures.

More information, including manuals, downloads, and support is available on the CFAST Website.
