This report details the third of three case studies used to explore spatial modelling of RHF incident on a house during a fire as an alternative of the AS3959 approach for hazard classification. This case study uses data collected during and after the fire that occurred at Springwood in NSW in October 2013. The study develops detailed modelling of radiant heat incident on houses using topographic information, while accounting for vegetation (fuel) structural variability across the landscape.
