Description Paper from the AFRC 2014 conference titled Hydrogen and Syngas Flares-comparison Between Experimental Data and Model Predictions by Derek Miller.
Abstract Accurate prediction of thermal radiation from hydrogen and syngas flares is critical for safe operation in a number of industries. Published models available today are primarily based on natural gas and other hydrocarbon mixes. It is unclear how suitable these models are for other gases. Air Products is a large producer of hydrogen and syngas and this paper presents the results of full-scale tests recently completed by the company, along with a study of other previously published experimental data. Results are compared against predictions from published models, where significant deficiencies are identified. Results are also compared against predictions from a recently developed model, specifically designed to overcome these deficiencies.
