Description

This report describes the operation of the fire behavior prediction program available as a Custom Read Only Memory (CROM) for the Hewlett-Packard model 71B handheld calculator. Worked examples are given for each of the 13 program modules, and the inputs and outputs are described. 'Fire danger computations with the Hewlett-Packard HP-71B calculator,' by Robert E. Burgan and Ronald A. Susott (1986) is a separate publication describing National Fire Danger Rating (NDFR) system computations with the HP-71B.
