Smoke and evacuation modelling in a truck manufacturing facility

Home of the famous Kenworth Truck, a performance based analysis was undertaken to alter a base building design item due to operational and maintenance issues.

Fire and smoke modelling to assess tenability conditions coupled with a real time evacuation analysis was undertaken to demonstrate occupant life safety and fire brigade intervention.

Due to the size of the facility the large isolated building provisions where applicable and fire brigade operational requirements were considered through the MFB stakeholder process.
