Kou, H.S., Yang, K.T. and Lloyd, J.R., 1986. Turbulent Buoyant Flow And Pressure Variations Around An Aircraft Fuselage In A Cross Wind Near The Ground. Fire Safety Science 1: 173-184. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.1-173
Two-dimensional numerical finite-difference calculations have been carried out to study the effects of cross wind speeds and the elevation of the fuselage on turbulent buoyant flow and pressure variations around an aircraft fuselage engulfed in a simulated fire in a uniform cross wind near the ground. Detailed velocity, temperature, smoke concentration, and pressure fields have been obtained and it is found that a major influence on the physical phenomena is the relative strength of the cross flow and the buoyant flow.
