Numerical simulation of natural fire in an industrial building considering earthquake damage of non-structural members

Kalliopi Zografopoulou, Daphne Pantousa, Euripidis Mistakidis


The aim of this paper is to examine the impact of post-earthquake non-structural damages on the development of natural fire in an industrialbuilding, used as storage area. Parametric fire scenarios with various levels of damage (window and door destruction, sprinkler system malfunction) are simulated on a 3D model of the structure, using the Computational Fluid Dynamics software FDS. The fire development is studied and temperature distributions on the structural members are obtained.
