Abstract: The new version of the fire dynamics simulator, FDS version 3.01, is verified by a series of full-scale fire tests. Experiments are carried out in a compartment similar in size to the ISO-9705 room calorimeter. Gasoline pool fires of different diameters are used to give different heat release rates. The ventilation factors of the compartment are adjusted to produce flashover. Fire-induced flow, temperature, and pressure fields in these different physical scenarios are calculated using the FDS software. The predictions for temperature and radiative heat flux of a post-flashover fire in the specific configuration tested are in reasonably good agreement with experimental results even when the flame occupies most of the room volume.
