Numerical fire simulations (in terms of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFDs)) are becoming increasingly pervasive in fire safety analysis, because they offer many benefits beyond those offered by traditional methods. Nevertheless, such simulations are time-consuming and require a relatively large amount of computation power for use in engineering applications. Therefore, compared to other methods, the use of numerical fire simulations for construction projects is not as common as it should be given their benefits. Moreover, the results of a fire safety analysis affect the different parties of a project, such as the architects, structural engineers, or project managers.
