The paper describes an application of Computational Fluid Dynamics to the simulation of a furnace for fire-resistance tests following standard fire conditions. The model is based on an accurate representation of a real fire furnace of fire laboratory PAVUS a.s. located in the Czech Republic. It includes geometry of the real furnace, material properties of the furnace linings, burners, ventilation conditions and measurement devices. The model allows controlling of gas temperature and the static over pressure in the volume of the furnace as it is specified in requirements of European standard for fire resistance tests. The accuracy of the model is validated on results of a fire test executed in a horizontal furnace. The results of the virtual furnace illustrate the great potential for investigating the thermal behaviour of fire-resistance tests.
