    Autodesk, Inc.’s, Project Scorch enables fire and smoke Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation within your buildings’ designs. In this class we’ll cover the full process, including importing your designs, creating burners and sprinklers, working with materials, and interpreting local and cloud-based analysis results—all to enable you to utilize the power of simulation within your design process. We will cover how understanding heat, smoke, and particle movement can help you in the design process, and how you can integrate simulation into the process. We will also cover some best practices and helpful tips to help you get the most out of Project Scorch, as well as demonstrate several examples to help understand key concepts.
