Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: A computer simulation model, FARSITE, includes existing fire behavior models for surface, crown, spotting, point-source fire acceleration, and fuel moisture. The model's components and assumptions are documented. Simulations were run for simple conditions that illustrate the effect of individual fire behavior models on two-dimensional fire growth.
Keywords: fire growth modeling, fire behavior models, fire simulation
