Abstract

This document provides documentation for creating and running Monte Carlo simulations with the Consolidated Fire And Smoke Transport (CFAST) model using the CFAST Fire Data Generator (CData). The method follows the general framework set forth in the ''Standard Guide for Evaluating the Predictive Capability of Deterministic Fire Models,'' ASTME1355. Instructions for using CFAST are contained in a separate user's guide, and model assessment information is contained in a separate verification and validation guide.
