FRIC webinar: Numerical Simulation of Smoldering
FRIC research result webinar: Three-Dimensional Numerical Simulation of Smoldering in Granular Biomass Fuel Beds

Smouldering fires (flameless combustion) represent significant risks to dwellings, industry, and wildland. In order to mitigate and control these risks it is important to understand and to be able to predict the smouldering process. Numerical simulations can in this context be powerful tool. However, building a numerical model that is capable to capture all relevant physics (heat transport, kinetics, etc.) with sufficient accuracy is difficult. The webinar will give a short introduction into smouldering fires and present challenges that smouldering poses to numerical models. Furthermore, a novel model that is currently under development for the simulation of smouldering in granular biomass fuel beds will be presented. The presenters hope that the webinar will be i informative for you, and that it will also initiate constructive discussions.

The research has been carried out as part of project 2-2 in FRIC, in a collaboration with Western Norway University of Applied Science (HVL).

Speakers: Bjarne C. Hagen (HVL), Tian Li (RISEFR) and Christoph Meraner (RISEFR)

The webinar is free and will be held in English.

The webinar will start with a presentation of the background for the project (5min), followed by a presentation of the results from the project (25 min), and 5 minutes for questions and discussions with the researchers. You are welcome to ask questions in English or in a Scandinavian language. The webinar will be recorded and made available for FRIC partners.
