t-quadrado
Explanation:
Mathematical curves (parabolas) used to predict the rate of fire growth.

Although there is no ref. in Spanish using this term in relation to fire, it is used in other mathematical concepts.

3.1 Pre-Flashover Design Fires
The heat release rate during the pre-flashover stage is commonly approximated by the unsteady parabolic curves known as t-squared fires. In a t-squared fire, the burning rate is assumed to vary proportionally to time squared. The NFPA t-squared design fires19, given by Equation (16), are widely referenced in the literature:
