High Temperature Radiation Absorption of Fuel Molecules And An Evaluation of Its Influence on Pool Fire Modeling

Infrared absorption coefficients of various gas and liquid fuels (propane, n-heptane, methanol, toluene, propylene and methyl methacrylate) were measured using high temperature Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) for a range of temperatures up to 1000 K in order to facilitate calculation of radiative absorption of fuel molecules in large-scale, non-premixed flames. Spectrally resolved fits as a function of temperature (up to 600 K) were calculated using a semi-empirical expression derived from quantum theory…
