3D Fire and Gas Mapping

IRESC is fully conversant with commonly adopted guidelines such as those of Shell, BP, PETRONAS and Woodside for conducting F&G mapping.

Using F&G Mapping techniques, the number and layout of flame, flammable gas and toxic gas detectors can be optimised by performing geometric calculations on the 3D model. The analysis is fully three-dimensional and gives confidence that defined performance targets are being met. The resulting detector locations typically give significantly improved detection coverage over more traditional rule-of-thumb approaches to installing detectors. Full three-dimensional CFD simulations are also used to provide more accurate and firm study bases to avoid over-conservatism in the number of detectors used.

IRESC uses proprietary in-house software for conducting F&G mapping. For more information please visit our software page / FIGCO brochure.
