Title: CFAST - Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (Version 6), User's Guide, DECEMBER 2008 REVISION
Published: June 12, 2009
Abstract: CFAST is a two-zone fire model capable of predicting the environment in a multi-compartment structure subjected to a fire. It calculates the time evolving distribution of smoke and gaseous combustion products as well as the temperature throughout a building during a user-prescribed fire. This report describes the use of the model, including installing and running the software, the computer platforms upon which it is supported and examples to verify correct installation.
