Description

Recent research efforts focused on the creation of fire spreading models using Cellular models. The Cell-DEVS formalism and the CD++ toolkit allow the user to construct their applications using simple and more intuitive model specification, which can execute with high efficiency using a discrete event approach. It was shown that different environmental applications can be easily faced, allowing the study of complex problems through simulation. The use of formal base improves the development, checking and maintaining phases, facilitating the testing and reuse of their components. The utilization of a discrete event formalism such as these ones can provide better precision and performance. We will present the definition of different models, focusing on how to define such applications using Cell-DEVS methodology.
