Fire Safety on Flame Spreading Over Liquid Fuels
Author(s): Eugenio Degroote ,Pedro Luis Garc

Subject(s): CX.1



Flame Spreading Over Liquid Fuels presents a complex behavior, depending on the initial conditions of the fuel surface temperature. It has been proved that, depending on the the initial surface fuel temperature, flame spreading is generally uniform but, for some range of intermediate temperatures, a pulsating behaviors appear. It has been observed that everything occurs in the vicinity of the fuel surface. The basic mechanisms that control flame spreading have been proposed, that correlate very well with our experimental data. All the results can be applied to the improve fire safety conditions in fuels containers.
