The main aim of the project leading to creation of this website is to gain better understanding of counter-fires. This involves specifically:
  • Assessment if CFD can be used in modelling of counter-fires;
  • Choice of appropriate software;
  • Generation of a CFD model enabling for prediction of: 
  • Fire and weather conditions suitable for counter-firing; 
  • Distance at which to place counter-fires effectively.
  • Evaluation of fire and weather conditions suitable for counter-firing;
  • Comparison of the results with previous CFD work on the subject;
  • Description of a proposed validation procedure providing all the necessary data.
