An important aspect in elucidating the causes of fire events occurence, is the identification of the initial outbreak following on-site investigations. Based on the information resulting from the event footprint (observed thermal and dynamic effects) in correlation with the results obtained in the laboratory tests on the collected samples, as well as the possible generating scenarios of the event, the most probable sources of ignition can be identified. The research team must thoroughly analyze all elements of thermal, mechanical, electrical, radiation, chemical, etc. which may have been present or incidents in the initial outbreak.
The computerized fire simulation software will also be used to verify possible scenarios with geometry modeling, combustible / flammable properties of the real case elements, as well as the location of the ignition source, following that the dynamics and propagation directions of simulated fire to be consistent with the case under consideration.
