Computer programs for simulating fire development in a multi-room building complements the experimental approach and/or post-fire on-site investigations. A variety of computer calculations can help to validate or deny a suggested fire scenario and witness statements. Thus they help to discriminate between alternative fire scenarios by evaluating the consequences and comparing them with observations. In this way computer simulation helps to rule in or rule out the suggested ignition and spread of the fire.
