Simulating Real-Time Fire for Firefighting Training

Christian Niemand - University of Kassel

Abstract

In this paper we start with a short introduction why a real-time fire simulation is needed by showing a few use cases and the respective requirements We continue with a short overview of related work and state of the art techniques.

Then we present our CUDA based parallel approach to simulate heat transfer, pyrolysis, transport and combustion in real-time followed by showing the results of our algorithms.

We will point out which components are still missing to reproduce the “Couch burning experiment” performed by Cape Girardeau Fire Department and to simulate a complete room fire in the future.
