The Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) developed by NIST is routinely used by SciRisq to provide fire, smoke and gas dispersion analysis.

SciRisq personnel have the ability to work with clients existing PDMS or CAD models to develop representations of the facility of interest and perform complex 3D analysis of potential fires using FDS. Such efforts are extremely useful in determining the real risks to existing facilities or those being designed. It also allows for a more accurate assessment of the exposure of personnel to hazards.

FDS is also used to determine the thermal hazards associated with events such as flaring during process upsets.
