Fire Data Management System, FDMS, is a system designed to store and retrieve fire test results obtained from bench-scale and real-scale tests as well as fire simulation programs. By storing available fire test values in a common format, this data is readily available to computer models, plotting programs, and report generators. An implementation of the FDMS for data ranging from bench-scale test results to real-scale fire tests is discussed.
