Mathematical Modeling of Large Forest Fires Initiation and Spread

Author: V. A. Perminov

Abstract: It is presented mathematical model for description of heat and mass transfer processes at crown and large forest fires initiation and spread, taking into account their mutual influences. Mathematical model of forest fire was based on an analysis of experimental data and using concepts and methods from reactive media mechanics. The paper suggested in the context of the general mathematical model of forest fires give a new mathematical setting and method of numerical solution of a problem of a forest fire modeling. The boundary-value problem is solved numerically using the control volume methods and method of splitting according to physical processes. In this context, a study - mathematical modeling - of the conditions of forest fire initiation and spreading that would make it possible to obtain a detailed picture of the change in the velocity, temperature and component concentration fields with time, and determine as well as the conditions of forest fires initiation and spread is of interest.
