Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: This study reports the results of simulating a fire that occurred in a semiconductor factory in Taiwan in 2005. Based on the Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), this research investigated the risk factors involved in the semiconductor factory after undergoing the fire, and assessed the hazards caused by smoke. A factory fire of such magnitude shuts down operation and is damaging to the local society, economy, and the environment. The findings of this research are intended to enhance the engineering of the plant and mitigate the factors that negatively influenced the evacuation of people during the actual fire, to reduce risk and loss of the property fire. This paper provides specific parameters and quantitative data regarding planning and design, to serve as a reference for formulating countermeasures for the fire protection of industrial factories in Taiwan.


Keywords: Computer simulation, Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS), Fire, Semiconductor factory, Boiler.
