An Annotated Bibliography of Thermal Radiation Validation Data for Fire Applications

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report details experimental data useful in validating radiative transfer codes involving participating media, particularly for cases involving combustion. Special emphasis is on data for pool fires. Features sought in the references are: Flame geometry and fuel that approximate conditions for a pool fire or a well-defined flame geometry and characteristics that can be completely modeled; detailed information that could be used as code input data, including species concentration and temperature profiles and associated absorption coefficients, soot morphology and concentration profiles, associated scattering coefficients and phase functions, specification of system geometry, and system boundary conditions; detailed information that could be ... continued below

Description

This report details experimental data useful in validating radiative transfer codes involving participating media, particularly for cases involving combustion. Special emphasis is on data for pool fires. Features sought in the references are: Flame geometry and fuel that approximate conditions for a pool fire or a well-defined flame geometry and characteristics that can be completely modeled; detailed information that could be used as code input data, including species concentration and temperature profiles and associated absorption coefficients, soot morphology and concentration profiles, associated scattering coefficients and phase functions, specification of system geometry, and system boundary conditions; detailed information that could be compared against code output predictions, including measured boundary radiative energy flux distributions (preferably spectral) and/or boundary temperature distributions; and a careful experimental error analysis so that code predictions could be rationally compared with experimental measurements. Reference data were gathered from more than 35 persons known to be active in the field of radiative transfer and combustion, particularly in experimental work. A literature search was carried out using key words. Additionally, the reference lists in papers/reports were pursued for additional leads. The report presents extended abstracts of the cited references, with comments on available and missing data for code validation, and comments on reported error. A graphic for quick reference is added to each abstract that indicates the completeness of data and how well the data mimics a large-scale pool fire. The references are organized into Lab-Scale Pool Fires, Large-Scale Pool Fires, Momentum-Driven Diffusion Flames, and Enclosure Fires. As an additional aid to report users, the Tables in Appendix A show the types of data included in each reference. The organization of the tables follows that used for the abstracts.
