Abstract : The report provides parametric relationships describing the possible interactions of fallout particles with air and gas currents arising from fires of circular area and from line fires. The effects that result from fallout - fire interactions due to varying fire dimensions and intensities, ambient wind velocities, fallout particle sizes, height of particle - fire plume interaction and other variables are given. Fallout field dislocations caused by fires are estimated for a number of fallout, fire, and ambient wind conditions relative to fields postulated to exist in the absence of fires. Under a number of fire input, meteorological, and fallout parameter values, the model output suggest that considerable alterations in fallout patterns could be produced. (Author)
