    Description

    The Fried and Fried containment algorithm, which models the effect of suppression efforts on fire growth, allows simulation of any mathematically representable fire shape, provides for "head" and "tail" attack tactics as well as parallel attack (building fireline parallel to but at some offset distance from the free-burning fire perimeter, alone and in combination with "firing out"), and supports dynamic (variable) forward rates of spread and fireline productivity over the course of initial attack.
