Next Generation Models

Next Generation fire behavior models capture coupled interactions between fire, dynamic atmosphere, vegetation structure and topography at high resolution.

This QUIC-Fire model was developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory, which won a 2020 R&D100 award and 2020 R&D100 Gold Medal for Corporate responsibility, is the first fast-running coupled simulation fire behavior model that captures the influences of the 3D fuel structure at meter scales, and the coupled interaction between fire, dynamic atmosphere, vegetation structure, and topography, integrating data of varying scales and incorporating the internal processes of the fire dynamics.
