Both our Short Fire Run and Fully Developed Fire Run models allow for Asset Protection Zone optimisation and the addition of a radiant heat barrier to shield a receiver.
This feature allows for Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) thresholds to be found. Either fire run model can be run and will determine the distances at which each BAL threshold is reached, down to a resolution of 1cm.
Radiant Heat Barrier
Both our fire run models allow for placement of a radiant heat barrier to shield a receiver from a portion of the radiant heat flux. At this stage, placement of the barrier is locked to the vegetation line.
The addition of a radiant heat barrier can be run in conjunction with the APZ optimistation feature.
