Availability Notice


The computer code COMPBRN-deterministically models the behavior of fire in a compartment. This manual presents information necessary to run COMPBRN, including, descriptions of required input and resulting output. Also included are a sample problem and a listing of the code (written in FORTRAN for an IBM 3033 computer). This manual is to be used in conjunction with NUREG/CR-2269, "Probabilistic Models for the Behavior of Compartment Fires," August 1981, which describes the fire models employed by COMPBRN.
