CFAST Consolidated Model of Fire Growth and Smoke Transport (Version 5): User s Guide
Richard D. Peacock, Walter W. Jones, Glenn P. Forney
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.
