A project was carried out at the National Institute of
Standards and Technology (NIST) to study the feasibility
of developing a new-generation, multi-room, compartment
fire model computer code, called the Consolidated
Compartment Fire Model (CCFM) computer code. The ideas
was that such a code would consolidate past progress in
zone-type compartment fire modeling, and allow readily
for integration of future advances with the greatest
possible flexibility. The project lead to the
development of a prototype multi-room CCFM product
called CCFM.VENTS. This is Part 3 of a four-part report
which documents CCFM.VENTS. It is a catalog of all the
modular algorithms and associated computer subroutines
used to simulate the physical phenomena in CCFM.VENTS.
Each physical algorithm entry includes a description of
the phenomenon simulated, a concise presentation of the
calculation procedure used, identification of all input
and output parameters, and a listing of the subroutine.
The catalog entries have been developed and are
presented as modular, stand-alone products. The
stand-alone design feature allows the catalog entries to
be used both in CCFM and in any other modular,
zone-type, compartment fire model computer code. The
other three parts of this report are: Part 1: Physical
Basis; Part 2: Software Reference Guide; and Part 4:
User Reference Guide.
