Despite all ships being built according to fire safety rules and regulations, ship fire accidents still occur. Currently, computational simulation tools are used to predict and mitigate fire propagation. However, fires have no reproducibility, and many types of flammable equipment and facilities cannot be considered in such simulations. Vague and varying simulation requirements can confuse ship designers. Time and budget limitation of design process also should be considered. Therefore, a framework for using computational fire simulations was explored in this study. The frame work started from the viewpoint ship designers with understanding of real ship design and building process.
