Abstract
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will evaluate the merit and feasibility of developing a graphical user interface (GUI) for major existing fire modeling codes. Fire modeling is used to evaluate fire spread and damage for a wide variety of applications of interest to private industry and the United States Air Force (USAF). Currently, most of these codes are difficult to use and require advanced training before they can be used successfully. Successful implementation of the proposed GUI would provide for significantly improved usability by fire research and fire protection engineering personnel. The GUI would support a wide variety of fire codes, ranging from simple zonal models to complex 3D CFD-based models. The capabilities of the GUI would include fire scenario development, model execution control and monitoring and multi-level post-processing, including advanced visualization. The GUI would support multiple computer platforms, and would provide capabilities for remote execution of the core fire models.
