The Center for the Simulation of Accidental Fires and Explosions (C-SAFE) at the University of Utah is focused on providing state-of-the-art, science-based tools for the numerical simulation of accidental fires and explosions, especially within the context of handling and storage of highly flammable materials. The objective of the C-SAFE effort is to provide a scalable, high-performance system composed of a problem-solving environment in which fundamental chemistry and engineering physics are fully coupled with non-linear solvers, optimization, computational steering, visualization and experimental data verification. The availability of simulations using this system will help to better evaluate the risks and safety issues associated with fires and explosions. Our five-year product, termed Uintah 5.0, will be validated and documented for practical application to accidents involving both hydrocarbon and energetic materials.
