Fire Prediction Model (FPM)
Modified: February 10, 2023 12:56 pm EST
The Fire Prediction Model (FPM) is a tool designed to assist analysts in simulating fire ignition, sustainment, and suppression for aircraft, ships, and ground vehicles. FPM is the primary physics-based fire simulation model in use for vehicle studies within the DoD’s ballistic vulnerability community, representing the culmination of more than a decade of development. Principal sponsors include the Joint Aircraft Survivability Program Office (JASPO) and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, with significant application support from the F-35, P-8, CH-33K, C-17, B-1B, JCA, and C-5 programs.
