The BehavePlus fire modelling system is a Windows® based computer program that can be used for any fire management application that involves modelling fire behaviour and some fire effects. The system is composed of a collection of mathematical models that describe fire behaviour and the fire environment. The program simulates rate of fire spread, spotting distance, scorch height, tree mortality, fuel moisture, wind adjustment factor, as well as other variables; so, it is used to predict fire behaviour in multiple situations
