Introduction Since 1985, the IFRF Research Station has been involved in both development and validation of various models for predicting of flames issued from industrial and semi- industrial scale burners. After a development phase, the computer models undergo comprehensive validation. The predictions are compared against in-flame data collected in numerous furnace trials. This comprehensive validation phase aims at establishing limitations and capabilities of the models. When confidence in the models is built up, they are used in every day engineering practices. The objectives of this paper is to review this process from models development through validation phase to their applications. The examples giv
