Within the framework of the construction of an underground car park, CES has contributed to predict the different situations resulting from both changes in temperature distribution and fire spread over time.

With over 364 parking spaces, this car park located in Turin, occupies a 9600 square meters surface area on 4 stories.

CES used its experience and expertise to jointly carry out computational fluid mechanics studies with ADVENG, in order to ensure maximum safety in these premises.

Fire risk assessment

Temperature field with distribution of smoke determined.

Computational fluid mechanics

Velocity field of smoke determined in taking into account ventilation system effects.

Tools developed

OpenSource software, developed by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) for simulation of fire propagation scenarios in a building. Results allow assessing temperatures and spread of smoke


CES’ objectives and contributions

Within the framework of this project, CES has evaluated the structural effects of different accident scenarios. Jointly working with AVENG, CES had to determine the smoke maps of buildings to assess the efficiency of the ventilation system
