Application of CFAST to Shipboard Fire Modeling I. Development of the Fire Specification
NAVAL RESEARCH LAB WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The use of the Consolidated Fire Growth and Smoke Transport CFAST fire model is well established within the civilian community. In recent years, the U.S. Navy has sponsored enhancements to the model including the addition of vertical vent flow, corridor flow, and improved heat conduction to make the model more useful in Navy fire scenarios. This report is the first of a series intended to document the current state of CFAST, identify areas in need of further development work, indicate the types of Navy problems which may be addressed by CFAST, and suggest procedures for the routine application of CFAST in ship design.
