Abstract:

FASTLite is a collection of procedures which builds on the core routines of FIREFORM and the computer model CFAST to provide engineering calculations of fire phenomena for the building designer, code official, fire protection engineer and fire safety related practitioner. This manual provides documentation and examples for using FASTLite. It describes how to install the software on a computer and provides a guide for the use of FASTLite using an example.
