  Computer modeling of vegetation fire is a complex interdisciplinary problem. Several program systems capable to model the spread of vegetation fire including a wide variety of physical processes related to fires into the calculation have been developed. The aim of the research is to understand the principles and models used for simulation of vegetation fire in the FDS program system and to test and verify selected parts of the system by modelling of a real vegetation fire. The research will also include the processing of experimental data obtained during fire tests and their use to verify the results of computer simulation. New results and experience in the field of effective realization of computer simulation on HPC infrastructure in Slovak Academy of Science are also expected.

Keywords: computer modelling, vegetation fire, FDS, fire propagation, parallel calculation, HPC
