    In this presentation we summarize the development work for the numerical simulation capabilities of fire development and effects. The developed topics were chosen to fulfil the observed gaps in our capability to evaluate the defence-in-depth principle in fire situations. The topics therefore include the models for the fire burning rate, thermally-induced failures of fire barriers and the subsequent failure of compartmentation, smoke-induced failures on electronics, and the performance assessment of the responding organizations.
