FPEC offers numerical simulation for disasters in inside of building

FPEC performs simulation for disasters not only outdoor but also inside of the building. such as explosion, fire spread, smoke generation and dispersion, leakage and gas dispersion.

FPEC has deep knowledge and abundant experience about petrochemical plant disasters and fire prevention systems, which allow us accurately understanding on what a customer is requesting us and reflecting them in the numerical analysis model. We will discuss with a customer with technical terms commonly used in petrochemical plants, not only with technical terms specific to numerical analysis.

In addition to the standard output such as movies and gradation maps like below figure-1, we also submit in a contour map as below figure-2 , that makes it easy to use the simulation results.
Our proposed concentration map is created by AutoCAD, based on the calculation results obtained by numerical analysis. 

Each color shows a range above a certain level of the concentration and is very clear, so we think it is very effective in use.
