|Title:||CFAST ‹ Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (Version 6): Technical Reference Guide|
|Published:||March 18, 2013|
|Abstract:||CFAST is a two-zone fire model capable of predicting the environment in a multi-compartment structure subjected to a fire. It calculates the time evolving distribution of smoke and fire gases and the temperature throughout a building during a user- prescribed fire. This report describes the equations which constitute the model, the physical basis for these equations, and an evaluation of the sensitivity and predictive capability of the model.|
