Developing a fire model for homeowner-sized plats - Protecting lives and properties through proper selection of building and landscape materials
Snapshot: This research is directed to development of fire growth model for the homeowner sized plat that would guide the user on better and aesthetic selections of building and landscaping construction to significantly reduce impact of an encroaching wild land fire, so that lives and properties are protected.
A fire growth model for homeowner-sized plats is being developed with state-of-the-art testing of realistic objects. Steve Schmieding, Forest Service
