The probabilistic k-center problem

Marc Demange, Marcel Adonis Haddad, Cécile Murat
2018 GEOSAFE Workshop on Robust Solutions for Fire Fighting  
First results deal with explicit solutions on paths and cycles, and hardness on planar graphs.  ...  We propose a probabilistic combinatorial optimization model for this problem, with uncertainty on vertices. This model is inspired by a wildfire management problem.  ...  for which fires occur on the other vertices (called the body).  ...

ForeFire open source wildfire front propagation model solver and programming interface

Jean-Baptiste Filippi
2018 GEOSAFE Workshop on Robust Solutions for Fire Fighting  
area simulators, such as FarSite [Finney(2004)] for which the fire font is defined as the contour of the burning area.  ...  Users of the code can therefore easily extend it to use it as a numerical testbed for new models. The code includes a solver that tracks the propagation of a fire front line.  ...  For example in wildland fire the discretization of the fire front is carried by approximating only the fire front line which is a 1D object, whereas front-capturing methods would have to approximate a  ...

Data instance generator and optimization models for evacuation planning in the event of wildfire

Christian Artigues, Emmanuel Hébrard, Yannick Pencolé, Andreas Schutt, Peter J. Stuckey
2018 GEOSAFE Workshop on Robust Solutions for Fire Fighting  
As a first contribution, an open-source data instance generator based on road network generation via quadtrees and a basic fire propagation model is proposed to the community.  ...  This paper present a new optimization model for evacuation planning in the event of wildfire aiming at maximizing the temporal safety margin between the evacuees and the actual or potential wildfire front  ...  Finally, we believe that coupling our approach with simulation and/or stochastic-robust optimization will lead to useful decision support tools in case of response to wild fires.  ...

A spatial optimisation model for fuel management to break the connectivity of high-risk regions while maintaining habitat quality

Javier León, Victor M. J. J. Reijnders, John W. Hearne, Melih Ozlen, Karin J. Reinke
2018 GEOSAFE Workshop on Robust Solutions for Fire Fighting  
For that purpose we have also shown that a lexicographical approach can also be used to get a good solution in terms of habitat value without increasing fire risk.  ...  On the other hand, for fire-dependent species the 'maximum tolerable fire interval' is also important.  ...

Pressurization systems do not work & present a risk to life safety

Simon Lay
2014 Case Studies in Fire Safety  
Design, installation and operational challenges are discussed and alternative solutions presented alongside guidance to building designers and approval authorities.  ...  Since the 1960s, pressurization has been a popular option for protecting stair enclosures in tall buildings, and the principle is relatively simple.  ...  Normally in the design process, a door at the foot of the stair is assumed to be open during fire fighting (for fire fighters entering the building) and also a single door on the fire floor.  ...
