Your will undertake research to improve the fire modelling capability within 
Warwick FIRE by consolidating various sub-models in fire simulations developed 
by previous researchers into the latest release of FireFOAM code and conduct 
original research to improve some of the sub-models within FireFOAM. This could in
include those for soot formation and oxidation as well as the existing tr
treatment for coupled simulations of pool fire mass burning rate and fire de
