    SFPE is nearing completion of its first computer model evaluation: DETACT-QS. DETACT-QS was chosen because of the model's simplicity, limited scope of application and widespread usage. The product of this review will be an evaluation report for use by users of the model, and reviewers of designs and submissions that are based on the model. The evaluation of DETACT was guided by the ASTM Standard Guide for Evaluating the Predictive Capability of Deterministic Fire Models (E 1355). This paper discusses the evaluation of DETACT in accordance with ASTM E1355, how ASTM has facilitated this effort, and identifies areas where ASTM could assist with future evaluation efforts.
