The Campbell Prediction System software for fire behavior has been proceeding nicely. Here's an update outstanding issues for the current release:

  • Add labels to the control panel's common time/hour slider
  • Fix the processing of "dynamic" fuel models
  • Add a few more fuel moisture options
  • Apply cosmetic improvements to the Fuel Flammability Chart
  • Add a CPS "Alignment of Forces" Chart
  • Create help for the Standard 40 Fuel Models
  • Create general help for the system.

CPS v1.0 will be ready for a general release once these few remaining tasks are addressed.

Currently, main trunk's codebase is fairly stable (revision 438); downloading the source and compiling at this stage of development should produce a working executable.

Update: I'm getting positive reviews from the Campbell Prediction System BETA testers. The next beta will include support for the dynamic fuel models. A release candidate will follow as soon as I've validated the fire behavior outputs against BehavePlus.

After reviewing the CPS program before all these improvements, Wow!
Do you ever sleep?
I hope to demo what I have so far this weekend to Will Spryison and Drew Smith.
These two guys are firefighters with loads of experience and use of CPS in the field.
After the demo. I will summarize the comments and post them.
Go Bruce

Hi Doug,

Let's shoot for this Sunday afternoon/evening again. CPS v1.0 Beta should be ready by then.

On the BEHAVE side: Now it only takes a couple of hours to learn to use the BEHAVE model. Lots better than 2 weeks it took me in S-490. Now that is progress.
