tion of the proper fire behavior fuel model and will allow comparison with fire danger rating fuel models. The 13 fire behavior fuel models are presented in 4 fuel groups: grasslands, shrublands, timber, and slash.

Each group comprises three or more fuel models; two or more photographs illustrate field situations relevant to each fuel Size: 3MB. Different kinds of fuel models are used in fire science; this document addresses only fire behavior fuel models for use in the Rothermel () surface fire spread model.

Fire behavior fuel models are used as input to the Rothermel () fire spread model, which is used in a variety of fire behavior modeling systems. The fire behavior fuel modelFile Size: 8MB.

A Fuel Model is a stylized set of fuel bed characteristics used as input for a variety of wildfire modeling applications. Wildfire behavior models, such as those of Rothermel, take into account numerous empirical variables. While these inputs are important for equation outputs, they are often difficult and time-consuming, if not impossible, to measure for each fuel bed.

The 13 fire behavior fuel models are cross- referenced to the 20 fuel models of the National Fire Danger Rating System by means of a similarity chart.

Fire behavior fuel models and fire danger rating fuel models, along with the fire-carrying features of the model and its physical characteristics, are described in Cited by: This LCP file utilizes LANDFIRE data, including the optional crown fuel bands but currently not including the optional surface fuel bands.

Characteristics of the new fuel model set, its development and its relationship to the original set of 13 fire behavior fuel models can be found in Burgan ().paper, "Estimating Wildfire Behavior Effects." There are 13 models, including 11 developed by Anderson and Brown and published by Rothermel (), a model for dead brush developed at the suggestion of Von Johnson,1and a model for southern rough developed by Albini.
