NIST Large Outdoor Fire Modeling Workshop

March 18, 2019 - March 19, 2019

NIST Large Outdoor Fire Modeling Workshop

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will host a Large Outdoor Fire Modeling Workshop  18-19 March 2019 in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Who should attend? Experts in the fire science, wildland fire, atmospheric modeling, and high-performance computing communities.

NIST is undertaking Structural Engineering Research for Reducing Risks Due to Earthquakes and Other Extreme Hazards. Post-earthquake fires and wildland fires currently represent risks due to these hazards. NIST is conducting a workshop to help identify measurement needs to inform future research activities in the area of Large Outdoor Fire Modeling.

Highlighted focus areas of the workshop include:

  • High-performance computing applied to outdoor fire modeling
  • Incorporating micro- and macro-scale weather data
  • Incorporating topography and terrain features
  • Ember generation, lofting, and spot fire ignition physics
  • Wind­-driven fire spread
  • Large-scale prescribed burn experiments
  • Wind-tunnel experiments

Registration closes on March 11, 2019. Please visit NIST’s Large Outdoor Fire Modeling Workshop website page for more information
