In the present work, the fireFoam solver was used with Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and the Eddy Dissipation Concept (EDC) for modelling a medium-scale methane pool fire. A convergence analysis performed, showed that a 2 Million elements three-dimensional mesh, is good enough to attain good numerical results. By comparing the numerical results obtained, with the experimental ones, as well as numerical results from previous studies, it was proven that the fireFoam solver is able to obtain satisfactory results.
