Thomas, P.H., Simms, D.L. and Wraight, H.G., 1964. FLAMES FROM FIRE FRONTS OF DIFFERENT SHAPES. Fire Research Notes 579
The relation between flame height, L, width of burning zone, Dw and rate of burning per unit are, m of wood cribs for a range of experimental conditions is of the form L/Dw = A(m/(??(gDw)))^2/3 where g is the acceleration due to gravity and ? is a density taken as a constant for a particular fuel. Although the value of A depends on the shape of the burning zone and the species of wood, it is sufficiently accurate for most purposes to assume its value is 40 when ? is taken nominally as the density of air equal to 1.3*10^-3 g/cm3.
