Abstract
THE WORK OF MANDELBROT HAS SHOWN THAT FRACTALS CAN BE USED EFFECTIVELY TO MODEL WITH COMPUTER GRAPHICS MANY TYPES OF NATURAL SHAPES AND FIGURES. THESE INCLUDE GEOGRAPHICAL FEATURES AS WELL AS CLOUDS AND TURBULENT FLUID BEHAVIOR. IT IS PROPOSED TO APPLY FRACTAL GEOMETRY IN A PURELY PHENOMENOLOGICAL FASHION TO THE MODELING OF FIREBALL SHAPES AND TEXTURES FOR POSSIBLE APPLICATION IN SUCH NUCLEAR EFFECTS CODES AS NORSE. THE AIM WILL BE TO PROVIDE IMPROVEMENTS IN SHAPE MODELS AND IN SOME ASPECTS OF FIREBALL STRUCTURE.
