The SMARTFIRE Scenario Designer provides a CAD-like interface for the specification of whole building geometries. The user can work on layers of the building using a 2D design area which overlays a floor plan diagram layer that can be imported from a CAD DXF floor plan diagram. The Scenario Designer also incorporates a room location utility to help find the "rooms" within the floor plan. Other objects can be added to the building plan to create a scenario. Once the scenario is complete, a SMARTFIRE model file is created which is then passed to the SMARTFIRE Case Specification Environment for advanced configuration (e.g. physics options, transient effects, detailed object configuration) and meshing.
The following example shows a walkthrough of a theatre building that has been constructed for fire spread modelling and evacuation studies.
