The BehavePlus fire modeling system is a PC-based program that is a collection of models that describe fire behavior, fire effects, and the fire environment. For more information, look under National Systems in the menu at the top of each page.

The installation program and accompanying files can be found on the Downloads page.

BehavePlus is a flexible system that produces tables, graphs, and simple diagrams and can be used for a multitude of fire management applications. BehavePlus is the successor to the BEHAVE fire behavior prediction and fuel modeling system. It is called the BehavePlus fire modeling system to reflect its expanded scope. Development continues with the addition of fire modeling capabilities and features to facilitate application. More information can be found in the paper "BehavePlus fire modeling system: past, present, and future," presented at the 7th Symposium on Fire and Forest Meteorological Society, 23-25 October 2007 (PDF; 647 KB).
