Thomas, P.H., 1957. THE CIRCULATION OF FUEL IN TANKS AND THE PICK UP OF PETROL BY FOAM. Fire Research Notes 282
It is shown that it is possible to correlate the amount of petrol picked up by foam injected at the base of a petrol tank with the velocity induced in the rising stream of petrol. Only results obtained with small inlets are anomalous and some explanation is offered for this. The relevance to the scaling of results obtained in small diameter tanks to large ones is also discussed.
