Research on the Combustion Characteristics of Small-Scaled Ethanol Pool Fire of Different Aspect Ratios
Four groups of small-scaled ethanol pool fire experiment with different aspect-ratio(s) is undertaken, to gauge the mass loss rate of fuel as well as the plume centerline temperature distribution. Comparison of plume centerline temperature is made between the theoretical values estimated by Heskestad plume model and experimental results, which indicates that: with the increasing of s, the difference between theoretical values and experimental values tend to grow greater; and when s≈1, theoretical values and experimental values cohere well.
