ABSTRACT: In 1992, a comprehensive survey of computer models for fire and smoke was conducted at the request of the Forum for International Cooperation on Fire Research. This study serves as an update to that work. One hundred sixty eight computer modeling programs for fire and smoke from several countries were identified and categorized. The developers were contacted and given an opportunity to supply information about their particular model via an electronic survey. The results of the survey will be made available on the internet at www.firemodelsurvey. com. A discussion of the categories of computer fire models is included, followed by lists of the identified models. KEY WORDS: modeling, computer fire models, model survey, model database, computational fluid dynamics, CFD
