Week 8 Final Project

The Station Nightclub Fire, with one hundred lives lost, is the fourth deadliest nightclub fire in U.S. history.  This fire has had many studies and models done on what went wrong and what could have been done to prevent it.  The primary focus of modeling is to provide mathematical and scientific research into the behavior and problems associated with fire.  The Fire Research Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed different kinds of fire models for more than 30 years.  Currently, it maintains two.  The first is a “zone model” called the Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (CFAST) and the second is a “field model” called the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS).  The United States government in their analysis of the Station Nightclub fire that occurred in West Warwick, Rhode Island utilized the FDS in evaluating the reason for the spread, behavior, and impact of the fire.  

For this assignment, you will be researching and discussing the following aspects of the Station Nightclub Fire.

1. Provide an overview of the Station Nightclub Fire.
2. Discuss all aspects of fire dynamics pertaining to this fire from ignition to flashover.  Be sure to include the furnishings and ignitable materials along with the fire spread and heat release rate.
3. Discuss the new codes that were brought about as a result of this fire?
4. Research a Fire Dynamics Simulator Model that was done on the Station Nightclub Fire and discuss the following aspects of that model:
     A. Summarize the fire model simulation.
     B. What were they trying to determine with this simulation?
     C. What were the results of the simulation?
     D. What recommendations were made as a result of the simulation?

Do not limit yourself to the above four items.  Add anything else that you think is relevant.  There is a lot of information out there on this fire but one great place to start your research is the NIST website.
