A PHYSICS-BASED APPROACH TO MODELING A PHYSICS-BASED APPROACH TO MODELING WILDLAND FIRE SPREAD THROUGH POROUS FUEL BEDSWILDLAND FIRE SPREAD THROUGH POROUS FUEL BEDS

Wildfires are becoming increasingly erratic nowadays at least in part because of climate change. CFD (computational fluid dynamics)-based models with the potential of simulating extreme behaviors are gaining increasing attention as a means to predict such behavior in order to aid firefighting efforts. This dissertation describes a wildfire model based on the current understanding of wildfire physics. The model includes physics of turbulence, inhomogeneous porous fuel beds, heat release, ignition, and firebrands. A discrete dynamical...
