AbstractCalibration and testing of a computer simulation of the burning of large woody natural fuels has been presented previously in this journal. This note describes an improved calibration of the model for better prediction of fuel loading reductions. Using the same data as before, fuel consumption predictions are improved substantially by making the area influence factor a function of fuel moisture content.
