The need for an accurate simulation of the radiative heat transfer in a fire zone model is demonstrated. Results show that the lack of an accurate model of the relevant physics of radiative heat transfer can lead to uncertainty which can severely limit the usefulness of a fire zone model. An accurate numerical model of radiative exchange including the effect of scattering, is applied to simulate the effect of radiative heat transfer on fire growth. Typical conservation equations in a fire zone models are used.
