Calculation of the Flame Size from Burning Liquid Pools

Abstract : The calculation of the consequences associated with a pool fire consists in a stepwise procedure where a number of parameters must be characterized, which depend on the geometrical size and shape of the flame. A number of calculation models exists in the literature, characterized by different levels of accuracy and complexity. In the present work we will focus on the characterization of the geometrical configuration of the flame generated from a pool fire: some of the most commonly adopted models will be shortly recalled, and compared against experimental data taken from the literature. It is expected that this would provide useful information about the range of applicability and the level of accuracy of these models. Also, it will help improve the quality of the results, and reduce the time required for carrying out important applications such as consequence assessment and risk analysis, where a large number of calculations must be run.
