Abstract : The global computational approach to the simulation of the meso-scale motions generated by a large area fire is described. Existing hydrocode solutions are reviewed and ongoing calculations discussed. Assumptions applied in many hydrocode solutions are assessed, and modeling requirements based on recent analytical efforts are defined. (Author)
