purpose of this project is to develop a computer program that is
The program shall be capable of identifying characteristics of the “prescribed burn” that, even though these input parameters are variable in the overall equation can be controlled to a certain extent thereby providing on-scene operations personnel with an enhanced level of knowledge of how the “prescribed burn” may possibly behave taking into consideration the identifiable input conditions. A “prescribed burn” operation is defined as a planned burning of flammable materials (such as dense undergrowth, dead trees, old trees, and excessive ground cover) in a specified area and under controlled conditions. The controlled conditions are represented in the program as the identifiable input parameters and are actually variable quantities, as noted above, that have to be considered as part of the “burn” problem. The program evaluates the aggregate set of input parameters and, based on these specified conditions, calculated recommended burn actions commensurate with the existing environmental conditions foe the removal of the undesired materials. The on-scene operations staff can utilize the management.
The program is created to establish a well-developed model that predicts the behavior of a prescribed ground burn. The program uses the predefined fuel models, the average percentage of both the wind and the slope of the terrain as inputs to establish a prediction on the scorch height, flame length.
