FireStar3D: 3D finite volume model for the prediction of wildfires

Abstract : A fully-physical wildfire model was used to simulate a confined fire in a wind tunnel. A preliminary study was carried out in the case of homogeneous fuel bed to evaluate the potential of the model to predict fire behavior. The obtained results were analyzed in terms of fire front rate of spread (ROS) and shape, for different wind velocities and fuel moisture content values and compared with experimental data from the literature (measurements and empirical correlations).
