Abstract Recent developments in modelling the effects of external radiation from pool fires were reviewed and relevant improvements were incorporated into the current HSE (POOLFIRE5) model. Software for the improved model (POOLFIRE6) was developed and validated. The model incorporates correlations for calculating the radiation from the pool surface in two zones: a high emissive power, clean burning layer at the base with a smoky, obscured layer above. A detailed technical specification of the new model is presented along with validation results and an illustration of its use for a typical scenario.
