Fire-atmosphere simulations of HiDALGO2 in the hands of civil protection

Our partner, David Caballero from MeteoGrid had the opportunity to explain some of the fire-atmosphere interaction simulations, carried out in the HiDALGO2 project during the XIV edition of the course on operations and safety in urban-forest interface fires, held at the National School of Civil Protection (Ministry of the Interior of Spain).

The audience included a diverse range of personnel from firefighting and civil protection agencies from across Spain.

The simulations of fire-atmosphere interactions offer a graphical and intuitive insight into the thermal forcing processes of the atmosphere and moisture entrainment in the smoke plume, as well as the production and dispersion of smoke that could potentially affect urbanised areas.
