Description Paper from the AFRC 2014 conference titled Combustion Efficiency of Flares and the Effects of Wind by J. Pohl.
Abstract Wind can have a major effect on flare performance. Flares such as those on the gas fields between Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada have major impacts of wind. A number of factors control the efficiency of industrial flares. Some of these are exit velocity, fuel composition, flare head design, amount and kind of assist fluid and how it is added, and external wind speed and turbulence. This paper sets out the effect of these factors on flare performance. First, the factors other than wind are discussed from theory and experimental data. Next, the effect of wind is discussed from literature data and theory. The effect of wind and the magnitude of this effect are discussed and summarized based on literature data.
