Title: Fire modelling

Ref Code: DG367
Authors: G Cox

Abstract1: This Digest explains the methodologies being used for the computer simulation of fire. It focuses on models of the fire itself - the essentially gas phase phenomenon at the heart of any fire simulation. It explains fire growth and spread, and the two basic types of computer simulation methodologies: zonal models, and the more universal field models that use the specialist discipline of computational fluid dynamics. Two types of field model are described which employ alternative approaches using Reynolds Averaged and Large Eddy methodologies to capture the influences of turbulence.
