Modeling to Support Damage Control Assessment and Decision-making - Fire and Smoke Spread Modeling
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Autonomic systems are required to achieve reduced manning for shipboard damage control. An integral element of this system is the capability to simulate physical phenomena that results in cascading failures, including fire and smoke spread. The work proposed here will use the physics-based fire and smoke model, Fire and Smoke Simulator (FSSIM), currently used for recoverability modeling, and transition it to a shipboard predictive model. Methods to integrate the model as a federate in an Automated Damage Control system will be developed. The work effort includes designs to adapt the model for faster-than-real-time predictive use. Integration with ship Smart Product Model and autonomous shipboard systems is proposed. Coding of the algorithm will follow Navy QA Standards. Shipboard hardware vendors have been identified to support the effort.
