Title: BEHAVE: fire behavior prediction and fuel modeling system - BURN subsystem, Part 2

Author: Andrews, Patricia L.; Chase, Carolyn H.;

Date: 1989

Source: General Technical Report INT-260. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Research Station. 93 p.

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: This is the third publication describing the BEHAVE system of computer programs for predicting behavior of wildland fires. This publication adds the following predictive capabilities: distance firebrands are lofted ahead of a wind-driven surface fire, probabilities of firebrands igniting spot fires, scorch height of trees, and percentage of tree mortality. The system includes a separate module for graphing moisture content of fine, dead fuels. Basic assumptions, limitations, and application of the prediction models are discussed. Previous publications in the BEHAVE series are BEHAVE: fire behavior prediction and fuel modeling system-FUEL subsystem (Burgan and Rothermel 1984), and BEHAVE: fire behavior prediction and fuel modeling system-BURN subsystem, Part 1 (Andrews 1986).

Keywords: wildland fire, fire management, fire effects, firebrand, fire ignition, tree mortality
