Fire simulation

“Fire spread simulation systems” are used in firefighting activities in order to rapidly predict fire spreading conditions based on actual weather conditions in order to assess what fire-fighting capabilities must be brought to bear, accurate team placement, and appropriate direction and management structures, in order to minimize the damages caused by multiple fires due to earthquakes, and in order to safely evacuate residents.
In order to take a safe town design approach which can be expected to prevent or delay the spread of fire, maintenance work must be facilitated in areas, especially densely populated urban areas, through the removal of burnable materials from along streets, securing open spaces, and the like.
In order to increase disaster prevention awareness among residents, and promote resident-led development, “fire spread simulation systems” can also be used to provide scientific, objective information.

  • The spread of fire from building to building is calculated based on past building fire and regional fire examples.
  • Weather conditions, such as wind direction and speed, and fire spread conditions, such as building collapse ratios, can be entered as appropriate
  • Fire spread barrier lines, such as for wide roads, rivers, and the like, can be set as desired.
  • Databases can be created in advance containing the structures and height of buildings owned by related organizations, information concerning factors that contribute to the spread of fire (hazardous facilities, flammable gas facilities, etc.), building spacing information obtainable from maps, and fire spread patterns for building types, making it possible to perform calculations in an extremely short period of time.
