Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. (GEM), is recently awarded a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract by the U.S. Office of Naval Research (ONR). This award is on development of a fully coupled fire-structure interaction module via the FDS-Abaqus coupling within GEM’s Abaqus Fire Interface Simulator Toolkit (AFIST). GEM has secured commitments for the joint tool development and validation support from FDS development team at NIST and Prof. Lattimer at Virginia Tech, as well as application guidance from SGH and Navy Lab. GEM will collaborate with the FDS development team to enhance and extend the existing solution module using an immersed boundary method (IBM) in FDS and develop a two-way coupling strategy for co-simulation of fire response and structure failure.
