Abstract:

The report discusses a computer model called FIREFLY developed and written in FORTRAN IV for the CDC 3600. This model may be applied to obtain statistical data on the expected numbers of buildings destroyed by fire from the thermal pulse of a hypothetical nuclear weapon and from any subsequent urban fire spread. Many variables concerning numbers and sizes of buildings, their construction, and separation distances may be evaluated.
