Fundamental laws of nature used in field modelling using Computational Fluid Dynamics are discussed and explained. Extensions and models used to complement these basic laws of physics in fire specific scenarios are also discussed. The field model SOFIE, Simulation Of Fires In Enclosures, has been used and predictions of gas-temperature, gas-velocity and presence of combustion gases are compared to experimental results from three different experimental series.
