Fire Modeling: Where Are We? Where Are We Going?

Mcgrattan, K.B., 2005. Fire Modeling: Where Are We? Where Are We Going?. Fire Safety Science 8: 53-68. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.8-53


Current trends in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling of fire are discussed, in particular the widening communication gap between model developers, model users, and the larger fire protection engineering community in regard to combustion and turbulence. The paper suggests steps that can be taken by all of these groups to improve the current situation and move forward to develop better fire models.
