Abstract

Fires and other related disasters provoke great destruction of high valuable environments and economical losses. In this work, we present a forest fire spreading algorithm to be used in real time and interactive Virtual Simulations. The main objective is to obtain a fast, interactive and quasi-realistic Virtual Simulation to be used in the simulation of virtual scenarios where fire-fighters and controllers will be trained. The algorithm supports the main variables involved in the fire spreading (slope and wind) and the radiation effect makes the forest fires bypass rivers or firewalls. To complete the simulation, a basic model has been added to extinguish the fire using water.
