This project, commissioned by the Australasian Fire Authorities Council (AFAC), justifies the need for guidelines in computer fire modeling, recommends practice guidelines for the standardization of the use of computer fire models across Australasia, and compares the differences in the use of computer fire models between Australasia and the UK. A survey was conducted in Australasia along with numerous discussions with key professionals from which a comparison with a similar UK study was conducted, along with the justification and development of recommendations for practice guidelines.
