SUMMARY: Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is an advanced simulation tool used by fire engineers. The work
described in this paper enables geometrical information to be transferred to the simulation tool using the IFC
building information model. A parser tool has been developed to extract fire engineering related information
from the IFC model and a web-based application has been created to generate FDS input files. Several test case
