DEVELOPMENT OF ANALYTIC FIRE MODELS
The hydrodynamic equations which include a turbulence model based on the work by Spalding's group have been derived along with the associated boundary and initial conditions. They have also been put into finite difference form, coded, and are currently being debugged. The soot chemical model has been determined and is included in the above formulation. A radiation code based on the long characteristics method has been prepared for inclusion into the code as a subroutine as has an equation of state package.
