Fire & Smoke in a real Metro Station
LES CFD Analysis performed with Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) from NIST.
Smoke iso-sorfaces are displayed in Augmented Reality (Unity3D Game Engine and ARCore SDK) and overlayed on a real Metro Station.
Software used: FreeCAD, Blender with the BlenderFDS Plug-in, Paraview, Gimp and Unity3D.
Smart Device used for the AR Experience: Samsung S8+ with Android 9.0
The main focus of this work is to show the potential of Augmented Reality for Fire Prevention and Investigations. Transparency set at 0.6 shading from white to black mimics the real smoke visibility that may occur in a real fire event
