A proposed method of detecting, locating, and sizing
accidental fires based on the solution of an inverse
heat transfer problem is described. The accuracy of the
inverse problem solution algorithm, both in locating
fires and determining their heat release rate is
evaluated using computer synthesized fire data. The
validity of the evaluation is verified using published
measurements from large scale compartment fire burns.
