Modeling Fire, Part 4 Addendum – Re-Analysis using HRRPUA Curve

This is an addendum to the Part 4 video on fire modeling. We re-analyzed the problem, changing the Heat Release Rate Per Unit Area (HRRPUA) from a constant value to a function (or curve). With this change, the new calculated total Heat Release Rate (HRR) is a reasonably close match to the measured experimental curve. The level of detail in the model is about as complicated as can be made without also simulating the pyrolysis process.
