Thunderhead Engineering has unveiled PyroSim 2019.2.1002, is a graphical user interface for the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), whitch helps you quickly create and manage the details of complex fire models.

- Added ability to customize keyboard shortcuts through the Preferences dialog.
- Added antialiasing (multisampling) for improved visual quality.
- Added anisotropic filtering for improved texture quality.
- Made improvements to background image quality.
- Made it so imported CAD lines/points are now written to the pyrogeom file so they will show in the Results.
- Fixed a bug where a GE1 filename would be added to the DUMP record even if GE1 output is disabled.
- Updated max CHID length to 50 characters instead of 255.
- Added label to show the current version of PyroSim in the Check for Updates window.
- Fixed a bug where copying a zone would not associated leakages if the zone was part of a subgroup.
- Adding a warning to make clear what the behavior when parsing FDS models with unknown fields.
- Fixed a bug where Alt+O and Alt+F didn't open "File" or "Output" menus.
- Added ability to create isosurfaces, Description3d output, and slices for FED quantity type.
- Fixed translation error for controls descriptions.
- Fixed a crash that could occur when creating a deadband control.
- Updated MPI to build 20180829.
Changes to Results:
- Added antialiasing (multisampling) for improved visual quality.
- Added anisotropic filtering for improved texture quality.
- Added support for skyboxes.
- Added results visualization management that allows results settings to be saved to and loaded from disk.
- Added a feature to show and hide Pathfinder background images separately from imported geometry.
- Improved Pathfinder background image quality.
- Fixed a bug where selected objects remain in the model after replacing a results set.
- Fixed reset to selected action doesn't work when floors laid out horizontally.
- Fixed a bug that could prevent Results from starting with the message "The program can't start because WMVCore.DLL is missing from your computer".
- Fixed incorrect time estimate in Create Movie progress dialog.
- Fixed a bug where the Recent Files list might be cleared when starting Results.
- Fixed a bug where screenshots and movies might be look incorrect if FDS smoke or fire is active and the screenshot size matches the window size.
- Fixed a bug where Results might crash if add a 2D slice to a 3D slice that doesn't exist in every mesh.

PyroSim is a graphical user interface for the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS). FDS models can predict smoke, temperature, carbon monoxide, and other substances during fires. The results of these simulations have been used to ensure the safety of buildings before construction, evaluate safety options of existing buildings, reconstruct fires for post-accident investigation, and assist in firefighter training.

FDS is a powerful fire simulator which was developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) (McGrattan, et al., 2013). FDS simulates fire scenariosusing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) optimized for low-speed, thermally-driven flow. This approach is very flexible and can be applied to fires ranging from stove-tops to oil storage tanks. It can also model situations that do not include a fire, such as ventilation in buildings. FDS and the Smokeview visualization program are both closely integrated into PyroSim.

The PyroSim interface provides immediate input feedback and ensures the correct format for the FDS input file. You can work in either metric or English units and you can switch between the two at any time. In addition, PyroSim offers high-level 2D and 3D geometry creation features, such as diagonal walls, background images for sketching, object grouping, flexible display options, as well as copying and replication of obstructions (0). You can import DXF files that include either 3D faces or 2D lines that can be extruded to create 3D objects in PyroSim.

Fire Modelling with Pyrosim

Thunderhead Engineering Consultants, Inc. develops software, with particular expertise in building intuitive graphical interfaces for specialized engineering and graphics applications that have powerful physics models but are difficult to use. The engineers at Thunderhead Engineering understand modeling and simulation concepts, and also recognize the aesthetics and usability of a well-designed user interface. Both of these strengths are applied to our software development goals. Thunderhead Engineering is dedicated to providing powerful visualization and modeling capability to practicing engineers and technicians.
