Ottawa: Forestry Canada, Science and Sustainable Development Directorate, (OCoLC) Simplified structure of Canadian Forest Fire Behavior Predic­ tion (FBP) System. 3 FRP System inputs are drawn from the three major groups of vari­ ables affecting fire behavior, namely fuels, weather and topography.

The Canadian Forest Fire Behaviour Prediction System (FBP), which provides much of the scientific basis for forest fire research as well as informing fire suppression practices, uses crown fraction. The Canadian Forest Fire Behavior Prediction (FBP) System provides quantitative estimates of potential head fire spread rate, fuel consumption, and fire intensity, as well as fire descriptions. Interesting enough, the predicted head fire rate of spread for the uncut grass fuel type (O-1b) in the newly released Canadian Forest Fire Behaviour Prediction System was, assuming % degree of. in ST-X-3 “The Development and Structure of the Canadian Forest Fire Behavior System”), but is rather a supplement to that publication. A correct and up-to-date implementation of the FBP System must rely on the information contained in both these reports. i.

For field use in predicting fire behavior, the FBP System is available in tables or computer program. The table format, "Field Guide to the Canadian Forest Fire Behavior Prediction (FBP) System edition", provides a simplified method for assessing wildland fire behavior potential. This guide is. The Canadian Forest Fire Behavior System is a systematic method for assessing wildland f1re behavior potential. The guide provides a simplified version of the system, presented in tabular format. It was prepared to assist staff in making first approximations of FBP system outputs when computer-based applications are not available.
