Fire & Smoke Modeling

When projects present scenarios that the building and fire codes have not yet envisioned, R.W. Sullivan Engineering helps guide the design team towards solutions which ensure that life safety, property protection, business continuity, and environmental protection objectives are achieved.  From order of magnitude calculations to detailed computational fluid dynamics simulations, we have a variety of fire and smoke modeling approaches to analyze a design and evaluate performance under fire and non-fire emergency conditions.  Computer fire and smoke modeling tools allow R.W. Sullivan Engineering to right-size atrium smoke control systems, accounting for the unique architectural and fire protection features of the project.  This approach can dramatically reduce the architectural and financial impacts of a generic one-size-fits-all strategy that most building and fire codes require.
