CFD Simulation of Fires using FDS

Level 2


This course assumes that delegates are already familiar with creating a simple FDS simulation at a similar level to that presented in the introductory course.

Day 1 (scenario design)

The course will be of interest to those who have some basic knowledge and wish to expand upon their expertise. It builds upon existing knowledge by reinforcing the underlying concepts and developing a further appreciation of the power and limitations of FDS simulations for practical fire scenarios. The use of FDS will provide hands-on experience and will provide delegates with an opportunity to set up an FDS simulation for realistic fire scenario.

Day 2 (scenario interpretation)

The results of the fire scenario (from day 1) will be interpreted, with a view to either applying FDS to practical fire simulation or to reviewing FDS simulation in a regulatory context, for example, fire service to critically analyse proposals by fire engineering consultants. This would also be of assistance to those in fire engineering consultancy to develop their skills.

Who should this course?

Delegates on this course should have completed a Level 1 course or have equivalent knowledge/experience.

Date: 20-21 July 2017
CPD certificate: A Glasgow Caledonian University CPD certificate for approximately 14 hours (2 days) shall be provided on completion of the course or 21 hours (if attending refresher day)
Price: £600 per person, payment by invoice only. Note: if booking all 3 courses, cost would be £1400
Location: GCU London, 40-48 Fashion Street, Spitalfields, London, E1 6PX
Payment: You will be invoiced for the course fees after booking
For further information or to book: To book a place, please email

OPTIONAL: Tutorial Day CFD Simulation using FDS


This day will be an individual work-based hands-on tutorial day. A walk-through example will be provided or delegates may alternatively choose to work on a model of their own.

Tutors will be available throughout the day to provide assistance tailored to the areas that arise as the delegates work through their models.

Who should do this course?

This would be advantageous for delegates wishing to consolidate knowledge from level 1 or who wish to refresh their knowledge prior to level 2.

Date: 19 July 2017
Price: £300 per person, payment by invoice only. Note: This must be taken in conjunction with a level 1 or level 2 course and cannot be taken in isolation.
