On the paths through which the fire progress faster

Hengameh R. Dehkordi


Usually, there are some paths through which the fire spreads faster in wildfire propagation. These paths are called strategic paths here as they play an essential role in improving the fire fighting management strategies. In this work, we find the equations of such paths and the fire fronts’ equation. We also calculate the area consumed by the fire. Moreover, implementing the approach in the MATLAB environment, we provide an example to demonstrate the efficiency of our proposed results.
