The Thermo-Fluids High Performance Computing (HPC) Lab at the University of Nairobi specializes in performance based computational simulation of smoke control and evacuation systems, known to be more cost effective in comparison with the prescriptive based standards. We also undertake fire safety design in compliance with prescriptive based approaches such as NFPA and IBC for smoke management systems, in instances where the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) require adherence to these codes.
