ODF's smoke management section has developed two computer aids to calculate fuel consumption for the Oregon Smoke Management system. They are Automatic Calculation of Slash Tonnage (ACOST) and Pile Calculation of Slash Tonnage (PCOST). The applications may be used as planning aids. Information entered may be changed to show consumption under varied fuel moisture conditions.
- ACOST will calculate consumption on broadcast burns
- PCOST calculates tonnage in piles
