Abstract
Residential occupancies are the most common type of buildings where compartment fires occur. In order to provide fire protection in these occupancies and thus to significantly reduce the number of future victims, the prediction of the fire effects during the first minutes becomes crucial. Particularly, forecasting fire dynamics (i.e. fire growth, smoke dispersion, etc.) may send early warnings to occupants and may provide important information for the fire service rescue team. Nevertheless, vali...
