AbstractThis report describes the theory of the Enclosed Pool Fire Development Model. The choice to use this particular model is made by the user, based on their knowledge of the building being evaluated and its occupancy, fuel loads, etc. The model calculates the quantities, which characterize the fire (heat release rate, temperature and thermal radiation heat fluxes) as a function of time. The equations used are taken from The SFPE Handbook of Fire Protection Engineering [2] and SINTEF's Handbook for Fire Calculations and Fire Risk Assessment in the Process Industry [3]. The user should consult these references forinformation on the assumptions and limitations inherent in these equations before using this model.
