Abstract—Many fires and explosions happen in tank farm. A fire and explosion simulation method based on VR is used. Tank fire and explosion special effect is realized by classical particle system. The real-time fire growth model, fireball growth model, fireball heat radiation model are created. The shock wave model of BLEVE also is created. The models and results of FDS (Fire Dynamic Simulator) are built in virtual reality system. It can show the process of fire and explosion development and calculate the hazard of fire and explosion. The virtual reality system can predict and provide a method to control the fire and explosion hazard.

Index Terms—fire, explosion, particle system, hazard prediction, real-time, prediction
