A simple model is proposed to predict the temperature of forced-ventilated building fires. This is an extension of the works by Tsuchiya and Sumi on natural-ventilated fires. Combustion process of the fuel and thermal radiation heat transfer of the gases and walls are included. The model can also simulate the transition from the development stage to the decay stage.
