Mass Flux In Fire Plumes

Zukoski, E.E., 1994. Mass Flux In Fire Plumes. Fire Safety Science 4: 137-147. doi:10.3801/IAFSS.FSS.4-137


A review is given of data that describe the mass flux of gas in large buoyant diffusion flames, with the aim of developing a rational picture for this process as well as a correlation of the data. A brief review of flame-height scaling parameters is followed by a discussion of measurement techniques, the previous work on far-field and fire-plume models, and a description of an effort to develop a rational entrainment model.
