Using a firebrand modelling dragon system, this study refined two sub models in the Wildland-Urban Interface Fire Dynamics Simulator: pyrolysis and firebrand transport. This research is benefiting fire model developers and improving numerical modelling of short-range embers.

This project was completed in January 2020.
