COMPF2 is a computer program for calculating the
characteristics of a post-flashover fire in a single
building compartment, based on fire-induced ventilation
through a single door or window. It is intended both
for performing design calculations and for the analysis
of experimental burn data. Wood, thermoplastic, and
liquid fuels can be treated. In addition to the
capability of performing calculations for compartments
with completely determined properties, routines are
included for calculating fire behavior by an innovative
variable abstraction method. A comprehensive output
format is provided which gives gas temperature, heat
flow terms, and flow variables. The documentation
includes input instructions, sample problems, and a
listing of the program. The program is written in
Fortran and constitutes an improved version of an
earlier program, COMPF. For additional information and
