Some recent studies concerned with fire physics in Japan are considered. The studies are classified in two groups, one which deals with fire in its broad sense and includes mathematical fire modeling, model experiments, studies on an overall characterization of fire, and a statistical approach: the other group includes research projects to clarify particular aspects of fire which may lead to improvements in the sub-programmes of fire modeling. The involvement between phenomenological fire research and the systems approach to fire safety design is also discussed.
