The release version of OptFuels will be presented at the 2012 Lake Tahoe Workshop. For more information on the workshop, see the announcement page here.
An introduction of OptFuels and the models used for the Tahoe Basin.
A description and analysis of the OptFuels heuristic algorithm.
Presentation demonstrating how erosion can be predicted using OptFuels simulation and outputs.
The Tahoe Basin Prototype Model for OptFuels was presented in Lake Tahoe on 17 May, 2011. The following presentations were given at the conference and are available to download.
An introduction to OptFuels and its capabilities, both implemented and planned.
This is a presentation introducing the OptFuels vegetation and fuels modeling process. Key concepts covered in the presentation include fuelbed succesional pathway development, forest stand growth and treatment modeling, and data updates to reflect past disturbances.
OptFuels integrates WEPP functionality to provide erosion modeling for various treatment solutions found by the OptFuels decision support tool. The following presentation illustrates this integration. Further information can be found here.
This presentation gives a detailed explanation of the OptFuels Heuristic Solver. More information about the heuristic solver can be found on the Heuristic Solver page.
