Towards validation of DEVS-FIRE wildfire simulation model Conference Paper uri icon


  • DEVS-FIRE is a model for discrete event simulation of wildfire spread, where fire spread is modeled as a contagion process in a cellular space of forest cells. In this paper, DEVS-FIRE is validated using FARSITE, a widely used fire spread model. Both graphical and statistical approaches are used and the results show that the output of DEVS-FIRE is comparable to that of FARSITE under a wide range of input conditions.
