New PyroSim Workshop Dates Available

Posted: November 3rd, 2020

Want to learn how to improve your fire modeling skills? Dave McGill has worked with Thunderhead Engineering to provide PyroSim and FDS training to hundreds of attendees for many years. We are excited to announce the latest dates, viewable at our online schedule, for his acclaimed courses in an online workshop format.

Online Format

Each online workshop will comprise eight 2-hour sessions. They are scheduled on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for four successive weeks. There are three different time zone options to coincide with business hours in Europe, Asia/Australia/New Zealand, and the Americas. The workshops will be conducted on Zoom. Each participant will require a second monitor so they can watch the instructor’s demonstration on one screen and perform the steps on their own screen. A microphone is required for asking questions, and a camera is a nice feature, although not mandatory.

PyroSim & FDS Online Workshop

This workshop is an introduction to both PyroSim and FDS which is suitable for beginning modelers, managers, and regulators. It presents the big picture so that participants can learn about the features of both PyroSim and FDS as they build a simple model.

Advanced PyroSim & FDS Online Workshop

This advanced workshop is designed for fire protection engineers to build performance-based engineering models. Attendees will examine common features and practical problems encountered when using PyroSim to create and run efficient FDS models. Discussions will also include the strengths and limitations of FDS. Participants should have a basic knowledge of both PyroSim and FDS prior to the workshop.


These courses are open for all who are interested. If you would like to attend, you can register here.
