Abstract: In recent years, advances in computational power and spatial data analysisGIS, remote sensing, etc have led to an increase in attempts to model thespread and behvaiour of wildland fires across the landscape. This series ofreview papers endeavours to critically and comprehensively review all types ofsurface fire spread models developed since 1990. This paper reviews models of asimulation or mathematical analogue nature. Most simulation models areimplementations of existing empirical or quasi-empirical models and theirprimary function is to convert these generally one dimensional models to twodimensions and then propagate a fire perimeter across a modelled landscape.Mathematical analogue models are those that are based on some mathematicalconceit rather than a physical representation of fire spread thatcoincidentally simulates the spread of fire. Other papers in the series reviewmodels of an physical or quasi-physical nature and empirical or quasi-empiricalnature. Many models are extensions or refinements of models developed before1990. Where this is the case, these models are also discussed but much lesscomprehensively.
