FAST is a collection of fire modeling tools which uses
the underlying fire model CFAST and adds the routines of
FIREFORM to provide engineering calculations of fire
phenomena in compartmented structures. This manual
provides documentation and examples for using FAST. It
describes how to install the software on a computer and
provides a guide for the use of FAST using examples.
