Question

A. A small pool fire has a total heat release rate of approximately 480 kW.Calculate using analytical equations derived from the ideal plume theory the mass flow into the plume at heights of 2.5m and 6.1 m above the floor. Calculate also the plume temperatures, velocities and radius at these heights. Assume that 30% of the energy is lost by radiation to the flames. State any other assumptions in your answer.8 marks B. Using Zukoski plume theory calculate the mass flow rate, velocity,temperature and radius at each height in Part A above when the fire is away from the walls plus the mass flow rate when the plume is next to one wall and in the corner.
