Based on a survey of kinematic fuel fires in aircraft accidents, two types, i.e., cascade and rod fuel flows, were selected to theoretical and experimental examination. The twofold objectives was 1 relate fire characteristics such as burning rate, radiation field, and flame size to the fuel parameters, the flowing conditions, and the environment, and 2 determine the parameters and their degree of control required to achieve reproducible fires suitable for testing extinguishing agents, equipment, and techniques. Theoretical models based on steady, laminar, one-dimensional flow were developed.
