This document is an implementation of the general requirements provided in ISO 16730-1 for the case of fire dynamics calculations involving a set of explicit algebraic formulae.
This document is arranged in the form of a template, where specific information relevant to the algebraic formulae is provided to satisfy the following types of general requirements:
a) description of physical phenomena addressed by the calculation method;
b) documentation of the calculation procedure and its scientific basis;
c) limitations of the calculation method;
d) input parameters for the calculation method; and
e) domain of applicability of the calculation method.
Examples of sets of algebraic formulae meeting the requirements of this document are provided in Annexes A and B. Annex A contains a set of algebraic formulae for radiation heat fluxes from a circular or near-circular open pool fire. Annex B contains formulae for configuration factors of a flame to a target.
