Online Fire Simulation Training

About The Course

Loss of containment in congested areas as a process plant in populated areas, or in terrain, differs significantly from releases in free surroundings. To capture the important interaction between released fluids and geometrical obstacles as piping, vessels, equipment, structures, buildings, and terrain etc., use of computational fluid dynamics software is required.
Kameleon FireEX-KFX represents the state-of-the art CFD tools for simulation of dispersion, fires and explosions in congested areas. It offers simulation of conventional jet and pool fires, complex multiphase spray fires with rainout ,well-ventilated and under-ventilated fires, LNG leaked with pool spreading, gas dispersion and fires, water-based fire mitigation by deluge, monitors, mist and water curtains in complex systems, optimization of passive fire protection ,flare analysis, as well as turbulent flow, gas dispersion and smoke analysis in general, all in congested areas taking weather effects into account.
On completion of the course you will be able to apply a sound knowledge of various technologies for checking response of structures under fire and blast loading.

Who Should Attend?

The course is intended for Engineers, Operations’ managers, Applied Scientists and Technologists interested in design & structure under blast and fire loading. Engineers, managers and scientists involved in design, assessment and management of a wide range of engineering structures will also benefit from this course.

Petter Aune

Petter Aune is Principal Specialist at DNV DS Plant CFD Solutions. With more than 25 years of experience from Sintef, ComputIT and DNV with application of CFD tools for environmental, operational and safety analyses, especially related to hazardous releases, fire and explosion safety, including LNG consequence modelling.

Petter is now part of the support and training team for KFX. He has a strong expertise on advanced CO2 dispersion analyses with hands-on CFD experience from major industrial full-scale CO2 capture and storage projects; the Stockholm Bio-CCS project (Stockholm Exergi), the Northern Lights CCS project (Equinor), and the Carbon Capture Oslo project (Fortum/Klemetsrud)

Petter develop his expertise on analysis of water extinguishing means, both from CFD side and experimental side, being involved and part of experienced experimentalist task force from Sintef Fire Laboratory; fire safety engineering and fire testing, fire development, fire extinguishing, water mist technology, laboratory experiments.
