Increasing Detect3D Accuracy


Until now, all project items have been added with the defaulted level of accuracy. This guide will show how to change the resolution of project items to improve accuracy.


Geometries containing large coarse object with few intricate pieces do not require high resolutions to accurately represent percent coverage areas. Increasing the accuracy of your project is valuable when complex geometries are used.


Both flame detectors and zones have a resolution associated with them, and each will be discussed in detail. Flame detectors have an additional capability, called adaptive refinement, in which an increased number of rays are cast along the edges of obstructions. A zone's resolution controls how well defined contours and isovolumes are, as well as the accuracy of the coverage statistics. It will be shown that it is best to increase the resolution of flame detectors first before increasing zone resolution to achieve the most accurate results.


A recommended strategy on very complex projects (20+ detectors) is to first design the layout using low accuracy to increase computation speed and ease of use. Once a layout has been determined, the accuracy can be increased for final results output and coverage statistics.


In this guide you will learn:

  • How to change the resolution for Detect3D project items

  • How to increase the adaptive refinements of a flame detector
