Many people think that the fuse is a simple device. However this review shows that modelling fuse behaviour can be very complex, involving electrical circuits, electromagnetics, heat transfer, materials science, mechanical engineering, plasma physics and numerical methods. The review is restricted to those modelling methods which can be directly put to practical use in fuse design and applications. The key issues are highlighted, and significant progress is reported, when compared with the situation which existed at the time of the first ICEFA in 1976. A list of key reference is provided to accompany the review.
