Wildfire propagation modelling
Wildfires are a concrete problem with a strong impact on human life, property and the environment, because they cause disruption and are an important source of pollutants. Climate change and ...
Modelling and simulation of wildland fire in the framework of the level set method
Among the modelling approaches that have been proposed for the simulation of wildfire propagation, two have gained considerable attention in recent years: the one based on a reaction-diffusion equation, and the one based ...
Turbulence and fire-spotting effects into wild-land fire simulators
This paper presents a mathematical approach to model the effects and the role of phenomena with random nature such as turbulence and fire-spotting into the existing wildfire simulators. The formulation proposes that the ...
Front propagation in anomalous diffusive media governed by time-fractional diffusion
In this paper, a multi-dimensional model is proposed to study the propagation of random fronts in media in which anomalous diffusion takes place. The front position is obtained as the weighted mean of fronts calculated by ...
Modelling wildland fire propagation by tracking random fronts
Abstract. Wildland fire propagation is studied in the liter- ature by two alternative approaches, namely the reaction– diffusion equation and the level-set method. These two ap- proaches are considered alternatives to each ...
