  • Modelling of smoke movement
    FRS is experienced in the use of zone models (eg CFAST) and CFD (computational fluid dynamics) field models, eg FDS.
  • Modelling of transient thermal conduction
    FRS has the capability to model using finite element technology the flow of heat and resulting temperature profiles within solid materials, including voids.
  • Modelling of movement of persons
    FRS is experienced in the use of EXODUS and LEGION models.
  • Fire dynamics and fire engineering calculations
    FRS has expertise in the quantification of fire characteristics (pre and post flashover) using academic, codified and software facilities.
  • Checking Services
    Dr Ray Connolly is experienced in providing expert review and analytical services for the checking of the detailed design of systems, including smoke management, evacuation modelling, structural fire engineering and sprinkler hydraulics. Checking services have been provided in the past with respect to Part B Building Regulations to many local authorities in Ireland and Approving Authorities in the UK. We are experienced at checking detailed calculations across the range of fire safety disciplines in the context of London Underground Limited’s Chief Engineers Department Category III (Independent) Checking.
