Fire Emission Production Simulator (FEPS)
Entry ID: USDAFS_FEPS
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Fire Emission Production Simulator (FEPS) is a user-friendly computer
program designed for scientists and resource managers with some working
knowledge of Microsoft Windows applications. The software manages data
concerning consumption, emissions and heat release characteristics of
prescribed burns and wildland fires.

The original Emissions Production Model (EPM) was designed to help managers
estimate and mitigate the rates of heat, particles, and carbon gas emissions
from controlled burns of harvest-slash residue in Northwest forests.
In updating EPM, a significant number of improvements were made, to the
usability, applicability, and accuracy of the model. The calculation approach
was totally redesigned, and the model has been renamed FEPS.

FEPS can be used for most forest, shrub and grassland types in North America
and the world. The program allows users to produce reasonable results with very
little information by providing default values and calculations; advanced users
can customize the data they provide to produce very refined results.

Total burn consumption values are distributed over the life of the burn to
generate hourly emission and release information. Data managed includes the
amount and fuel moisture of various fuel strata, hourly weather, and a number
of other factors.
