Abstract:

The review covers literature on fundamental aspects of the combustion of liquid fuel at a free surface and includes influence of atmospheric conditions, fuel properties, diameter of container and partial venting of container on the burning characteristics, particularly the burning rate temperature distribution in the liquid and the phenomena of hot zone formation and boil-over prevailing concepts of heat transfer from the flame to the liquid effect of water as a dispersed phase, and as a substrate, on burning.
