Simulations aux grandes échelles de panaches

  title={Simulations aux grandes {\'e}chelles de panaches},
  author={Damien Lamalle and Pierre Carlotti and Pietro Salizzoni and Richard J. Perkins},
CFD simulations are more and more used in fire safety studies and enable to simulate smoke propagation within compartments. This work aims at improving our knowledge on fire plumes and our ability to model them with CFD codes in order to provide safer fire safety studies. During this work several quantities have been analysed (such as W-velocity profiles, momentum and mass fluxes, plume width, entrainment, Richardson number...) in order to highlight the fact that simulations with a fluid… CONTINUE READING
