A convection model for fire spread simulation

Abstract

We present a convection model which can be coupled with fire propagation models in order to take into account the wind and the slope which are two of the most relevant factors affecting surface fire spread. An asymptotic analysis gives a three dimensional convective model governed by a two–dimensional equation.
