Abstract: Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a popular design tool in many projects for ensuring fire safety through performance-based design. However, there are always challenges on the quality and uncertainties of the CFD simulated results. Two points raised are on the grid size and free boundary conditions. A simple corridor fire with a small design fire is taken as an example to address these two points in this paper. The CFD model Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) version 5 was taken as the simulation tool Two-dimensional and three-dimensional simulations are compared. The geometry is proposed to outside for better description on minimizing opening boundary.
