Numerische Brandsimulation I + II

Hinweis: Da diese Veranstaltung auch in einem englischsprachigen Studiengang angeboten wird, ist die Veranstaltungssprache Englisch.



Fire simulations gained a crucial position in fire safety science and engineering. They are capable to predict smoke and fire dynamics in a wide range of applications: like assessment of life safety, heat flux on building structures, or prediction of flame spread.


This lecture focuses on CFD (computational fluid dynamics) based methods and outlines the involved chemical and physical processes as well as the needed numerical schemes. The practical exercises are used to demonstrate the application and validity of the simulation software FDS (Fire Dynamics Simulator). The main emphasis is put on the assessment of plausibility and validity of the results.


This lecture is split into two parts that can and should be visited simultaneously:

  • Numerische Brandsimulationen I: Main lecture and exercises, that cover all topics. This lecture can be visited without the need to visit the second part.
  • Numerische Brandsimulationen II: Additional and advanced topics that extend the first part. This lecture should be visited along with the first part

Master Courses

The two lectures are part of the following master courses with different roles:

  • Sicherheitstechnik / Safety Engineering: First part is mandatory, second part is optional 
  • Bauingenieurwesen / Civil Engineering: Both parts are optional.
  • Computer Simulation in Science: Both parts are mandatory 


  • All lectures and exercises take place in HC 01.15. 
  • The starting times for the lectures are: 08:30 on Fridays and 12:15 on Tuesdays
  • All materials are provided via moodle, the access password is handed out at the first lecture.
  • Please bring you own notebooks for the exercises.
