A mixture fraction based combustion model and a finite
volume radiation transport model have been added to the
Fire Dynamics Simulator v1.0 (FDS) developed at the
National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Computations of three propane fire experiments in a
one-half scale ISO 9705 compartment are made with the
new models. The computational results are compared to
data collected at the Virginia Tech Fire Research
