This paper presents a recently developed computer
model which can simulate the fire spread in the
The computer model is the result of the
coupling of two numerical methods for the simulation
of the flow field and the combustion process at the
The model is applied to predict the
propagation of the fire front of an actual well
documented fire in Cyprus.
The predictions of the
speed and the direction of the actual fire gave
promising results, verifying that a mathematical tool
is available for the accurate prediction of the fire
evolution in real time.
In recent years, an increasing interest in
forecasting the evolution of a fire front unde...
