Presentation Outline

Ventus is designed to provide a pressurization simulation for smoke control analysis. The simulation is performed by CONTAM, an open-source application maintained and developed by NIST.

Like PyroSim and FDS, Ventus provides a premium user experience for industry leading simulation software. By utilizing our expertise in delivering 3D modeling applications for fire protection eningeering, Ventus will exceed the demands of CONTAM users who want to accelerate their smoke control projects.

  1. Ventus allows users to build 3D models of pressure zones based on actual building geometry.
  2. Ventus manages multi-variable scenarios for simplified batch CONTAM simulation and analysis.
  3. Ventus tabulates results data for multiple scenarios into digestible CSV data and 3D visuals.
