The Commonwealth Scientific [and] Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), an Australian governmental research company, wished to define a potential market in fire modeling services. Interviews and surveys conducted provide insight gathered from fire engineering practitioners as to the fire models they use, the experimental data that is needed, and any features found desirable or undesirable. This information has been analyzed to help direct CSIRO towards a service-oriented market in computer fire modeling. This document presents the completed project for CSIRO.
