Gore, J., Klassen, M., Hamins, A. and Kashiwagi, T., 1991. Fuel Property Effects On Burning Rate And Radiative Transfer From Liquid Pool Flames. Fire Safety Science 3: 395-404. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.3-395
Measurements of burning rates and radiative heat loss fractions for pool flames burning a variety of fuels in pools of three sizes are reported. The data show significant effects of fuel type on burning rates. The radiative heat loss fractions of luminous flames are found to be relatively independent of sooting tendency. Measurements of monochromatic absorption and two-line emission intensities indicate that this insensitivity is due to the presence of large quantities of cold soot in heavily sooting flames.
