- The objective of this report is to provide a methodology for utilization of the NIST FDS code to evaluate the effects of radiant and convective heating from single and multiple fire sources, on heat sensitive targets as Special Nuclear Materials (SNM), and High Explosives (HE). The presentation will demonstrate practical applications of the FDS computer program in fire hazards analysis, and illustrate the advantages over hand calculations for radiant heat and convective transfer and fire progression. The ''visualization'' of radiant and convective heat effects will be demonstrated as a tool for supporting conclusions of fire hazards analysis and TSR development.
