Fire-spotting modelling and parametrisation for wild-land fires
This article describes a mathematical formulation for simulating the effects of firebrands on the propagation of the wild-land fires. Among the different approaches available in literature, this
Wildland fire propagation modeling: fire-spotting parametrisation and energy balance
Present research concerns the physical background of a wild-fire propagation model based on the split of the front motion into two parts drifting and fluctuating. The drifting part is solved by the
Physical parametrisation of fire-spotting for operational fire spread models: response analysis with a model based on the Level Set Method
A complete physical parametrisation of fire-spotting is presented within a formulation aimed to include random processes into operational fire spread models, which can be implemented into existing operational models as a post-processing scheme at each time step.
Surrogate-based global sensitivity analysis for turbulence and fire-spotting effects in regional-scale wildland fire modeling.
In presence of strong winds, wildfires feature nonlinear behavior, possibly inducing fire-spotting. We present a global sensitivity analysis of a new sub-model for turbulence and fire-spotting
Wildfire propagation modelling
Wildfires are a challenging task for research, mainly because of their multi-scale and multi-disciplinary nature. Wildfire propagation is studied in the literature by two alternative approaches: the
RandomFront 2.3: a physical parameterisation of fire spotting for operational fire spread models – implementation in WRF-SFIRE and response analysis with LSFire+
Among the many rigorous approaches available in the literature to model firebrand transport and distribution, the approach presented here proves to be simple yet versatile for application to operational large-scale fire spread models.
Modelling and simulation of wildland fire in the framework of the level set method
The connection between these two approaches, traditionally seen in competition, do actually lead to similar equation models when the level set method is modified taking into account random effects as those due to turbulent hot air transport and fire spotting phenomena.
Concurent multi-scale physical parametrization of fire-spotting: A study on the role of macro- and meso-scale characteristics of the system
The aim of the present research is the improvement of these software codes by proposing a complete physical characterization of firespotting within an approach that is ready to be implemented as a post-processing routine of standard outputs.


Modelling turbulence effects in wildland fire propagation by the randomized level-set method
Turbulence is of paramount importance in wildland fire propagation since it randomly transports the hot air mass that can pre-heat and then ignite the area ahead the fire. This contributes to give a
Modelling wildland fire propagation by tracking random fronts
Abstract. Wildland fire propagation is studied in the literature by two alternative approaches, namely the reaction–diffusion equation and the level-set method. These two approaches are considered
Coupled Atmosphere‐Wildland Fire Modelling
Simulating the interaction between fire and atmosphere is critical to the estimation of the rate of spread of the fire. Wildfire's convection (i.e., entire plume) can modify the local meteorology
Forecasting wind-driven wildfires using an inverse modelling approach
Abstract. A technology able to rapidly forecast wildfire dynamics would lead to a paradigm shift in the response to emergencies, providing the Fire Service with essential information about the
Fire Spotting Effects in Wildland Fire Propagation
Wildland fire propagation is affected by events with random character. Two of them are turbulence, due to the Atmospheric Boundary Layer and to the fire-induced flow, and fire spotting, when sparks
The Properties of Elliptical Wildfire Growth for Time Dependent Fuel and Meteorological Conditions
Abstract Abstract— This work considers an existing system of differential equations based on Huygens' Principle that can, under some assumptions, trace the position in time of the perimeter of a

A Coupled AtmosphereFire Model: Convective Feedback on Fire-Line Dynamics
A coupled atmosphere-fire model is described and demonstrated: a three-dimensional, time-dependent wildfire simulation model that can represent the finescale dynamics of convective processes and capture ambient meteorological conditions.
Wildland surface fire spread modelling, 1990–2007. 3: Simulation and mathematical analogue models
In recent years, advances in computational power have led to an increase in attempts to model the behaviour of wildland fires and to simulate their spread across landscape. The present series of

This work considers the modelling of two dimensional fire spread for heterogeneous fuel and meteorological conditions. Differential equations are used as the modelling form, and a set of partial
