EXODUS SMARTFIRE AASK DATABASE

vrEXODUS representation of an airEXODUS simulation of evacuation from a hypothetical double deck aircraft using all available exits.  The model includes 580 passengers and the aircraft has nine pairs of Type A exits, four on the upper deck and five on the lower deck.
EXODUS - the evacuation tool for the safety industry - has been developed to meet the challenging demands of performance based safety codes. EXODUS allows the safety engineer to test designs in less time, thus reaching the optimal solution, free of the high cost and potential danger associated with human evacuation trials.

smartfire

SMARTFIRE is a complete Fire Field Modelling Environment that aims to make Fire Field Modelling techniques accessible to non-Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) experts, and to produce a useful tool for research and consultative applications in fire safety engineering.

AASK DB
The AASK Database project is concerned with the development of the Aircraft Accident Statistics and Knowledge (AASK) database. It is a repository of survivor accounts from aviation accidents.  Its main purpose is to store observational and anecdotal data from the actual interviews of the occupants involved in aircraft accidents. 

 EXODUS EVACUATION MODELLING SOFTWARE

Exodus

EXODUS - the evacuation tool for the safety industry - has been developed to meet the challenging demands of performance based safety codes. Based on a highly sophisticated set of sub models, it shatters the mould of traditional engineering analysis to produce realistic people-people, people-fire and people-structure interactions. As a result, the safety engineer can test more designs in less time to reach the optimal solution, free of the high cost and potential danger associated with human evacuation trials. Developed by the Fire Safety Engineering Group at the University of Greenwich, EXODUS comprises a suite of software packages, tailored to the building, maritime and aircraft environments.  A rail version of the EXODUS software is currently under development.

 SMARTFIRE FIRE FIELD MODELLING ENVIRONMENT

Smartfire

SMARTFIRE, developed within the Fire Safety Engineering Group at the University of Greenwich, is a complete Fire Field Modelling Environment that employs state-of-the-art finite volume methods.  The aim of SMARTFIRE is twofold. (1) To make Fire Field Modelling techniques accessible to non-Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) experts; such as fire fighters, architects or fire safety engineers, and (2) To produce a useful tool for research and consultative applications in fire safety engineering.  To achieve these aims the SMARTFIRE Fire Field Modelling Environment has been created, based on an open architecture interactive CFD code with integrated knowledge based components. SMARTFIRE employs sophisticated knowledge based routines, intuitive interactive graphical User Interfaces and comprehensive numerical models to provide enhanced usability, complete control, powerful features and fast project turn-around.

 THE AASK DATABASE

AASK DB

The AASK Database project undertaken by the Fire Safety Engineering Group of the University of Greenwich funded by the UK CAA (CAA project 277/SRG/R&AD) concerned with the development of the Aircraft Accident Statistics and Knowledge (AASK) database. It is a repository of survivor accounts from aviation accidents.  Its main purpose is to store observational and anecdotal data from the actual interviews of the occupants involved in aircraft accidents.  It was initially envisaged as an aid to the development of aircraft evacuation models - such as airEXODUS - where insight was required into how people actually behaved during evacuation from survivable aircraft crashes.  In addition, the database has wider application to other areas of aviation safety.
