Next Generation Fire Modelling

Future fire modelling research needs to bridge the gap between fire danger prediction systems based on the science of the 1950’s and 60’s to one that exploits current research, technology and conditions. This cluster of projects is addressing this gap, as well as looking to longer term opportunities related to more sophisticated fire behaviour models. All projects within this cluster are contributing to the science underpinning a new national fire danger rating system and the national capability to support fire predictive services.

‘CRC funded projects’ details research conducted by the core, CRC funded, program.

Projects in ‘commissioned research’ detail research the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC has, or is, conducting directly for a partner organisation, outside of the core, CRC funded, program. These projects are included on this page as their topic relates to this cluster, and the findings may be of interest.
