27 Gogolek, Peter E.G.; Hayden, A.C.S.Wind turbulence and elevated flare flames2004
28 Evans, ScottPerformance evaluation of a steam-assisted flare at high turndown using passive fourier transform infrared spectroscopy2010-09-30
29 Varner, Vance; Fox, Scott; Schwartz, Robert; Wozniak, RussellPressure-assisted flare emissions testing2007Due to increased concern regarding air emissions of highly-reactive volatile organic compounds (HRVOC) in the Greater Houston area, emissions from various sources in the area are now subject to much more scrutiny by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. One potential source of emissions is ...
30 Parente, A.; Galletti, C.; Tognotti, LeonardoPredicting no formation in flameless combustion regime2009The direct implementation of large kinetic mechanisms for the prediction of pollutant emissions into CFD codes is still unfeasible, due to computer time limitations which become particularly relevant when considering the typical scale of the industrial applications. Therefore, simplified modeling ap...

32 Dahm, Werner J.A.Scaling relations for flare interactions, flame lengths, and crosslighting requirements in large flare fields2007Flare fields typically consist of many closely-spaced flares arranged in parallel rows. Each flare in the field produces an axisymmetric buoyant jet flame that for a limited vertical distance develops essentially independent of the other flames in the field. However, at a distance above the flare ti...
33 Pagot, P. R.; Grandmaison, E. W.; Sobiesiak, A.Some characteristics of multi-jet flares2004Results of a test program with a multi-jet, high momentum burner simulating many of the features found in offshore flare systems are described. Previous work (Pagot et al., 2003) has given background on a hot and cold model study for this type of flare. The features of the flare flames are described...
34 Pohl, John; Gogolek, Peter E.G.; Seebold, J. G.; Schwartz, RobertStatistical correlation of flame properties with combustion and destruction efficiency2011-02-11This paper seeks to investigate the correlation of flame properties with flare combustion and destruction efficiency and statistically select the most accuracy correlation. First, the previous correlation will be reviewed. Then new correlations of flame properties with combustion and destruction wil...
35 Hinnrichs, MicheleRemote sensing & analysis of unburned gases from stacks & flares using imaging spectroscopy-presentation2009
36 Seebold, James G.; Gogolek, Peter E.G.; Pohl, John; Schwartz, RobertPractical implications of prior research on today's outstanding flare emissions questions and a research program to answer them2004The external combustion of hydrocarbon gas mixtures by any means, including flaring, literally manufactures and subsequently emits to the atmosphere traces of all possible molecular combinations of the elemental constituents present either in the fuel or in the air including the ozone precursor high...
37 Wendt, Jost O. L.Oxy-coal combustion for retrofit: challenges and opportunities2009This paper is concerned with Oxy-Fuel Combustion, a process for the control of carbon dioxide from a range of solid fuel combustion processes. The focus is on the applicability of this technology for retrofit and hence on entrained flow combustors rather than on circulating fluidized bed systems. Fi...
38 Johnson, MatthewPM emissions from flares: chasms among current emission factors,fundamental studies, and field observations2010-09-30
39 Cain, John; Seebold, James G.; Young, LymanOverview of flaring efficiency studies2002Several studies over the past 20 years have evaluated flare efficiencies. These include major flare research programs by the U.S. EPA, the Alberta Research Council, and the University of Alberta. Other work includes a CMA study; surveys of operating flares by BP/Statoil, the German Aerospace Centre ...
40 Thumuluru, Sai Kumar; Lieuwen, TimOH- PLIF studies of acoustically forced swirl flames2009Lean premixed combustors are highly susceptible to combustion instabilities, caused by coupling of heat release fluctuations with combustor acoustics. In order to predict the conditions under which these instabilities occur and their limit cycle amplitudes, understanding of the amplitude dependent r...
41 Martin, Richard; Nickeson, DaleLow Nox Burner Development for High Temperature Reforming and Cracking Furnaces
42 Damico, R.Optimization of an Elevated Staged Flare for a Large Gas PlantIn recent years, the newly designed and constructed gas plants have become increasingly larger in size, with a consequent huge increase in the required flaring capacity. At the same time there is the necessity to have smokeless flaring, also at very low flow rates when compared with the total design...
43 Thornock, Jeremy; Smith, Philip; Chambers, Allan K.LES simulations of sour gas flares in Western Canada2009In this paper we describe the development of a numerical simulation tool for a sour gas flare of the type typically found in Alberta. The purpose of the model is to provide a way to guide safer sour gas flare operating conditions for varying environmental and operating conditions. The numerical simu...

45 Memorandum to file American Flame Research Committee International Symposium Industrial Process Combustion Technology1980-11-12
46 Shore, DavidImproving flare design a transition from art-form to engineering science2007Many of the day-to-day activities surrounding Flaring, at both the project design and operational stages, are vague and apparently outside the control of the Flare Engineer. Design specifications usually only cover a single case out of a multitude of possible compositions and flows. In service, flow...
47 Diez, Francisco J.; Dahm, Werner J.A.Improved prediction of buoyancy effects on flame length and combustion properties of flares2004An improved integral method is presented for determining the flame length and combustion properties of buoyant jet flames, including flares, that avoids the Morton entrainment hypothesis entirely and thereby removes the ad hoc "entrainment modeling" required in most other integral approaches. Rather...
48 Lewis, Elliot-Sullivan; Hack, Richard; McDonell, VincentDevelopment of a modular supplemental burner for optimization of distributed generation/combined heat and power system efficiency2011Increased interest in distributed power generation has lead to increased interest in combined heating cooling and power (CCHP). One significant issue in implementing a CCHP is that electrical loads and heating or cooling loads are rarely synchronized. Duct burners are frequently used to provide addi...
49 Evans, ScottInsights from passive FTIR flare performance testing2011
50 Hong, J.; Baukal, C.; Bastianen, M.; Bellovich, J.; Leary, K.Innovative steam-assisted flare technology2007A new steam-assisted flare has been developed which reduces or eliminates some of the potential limitations of conventional steam-assisted flares. The improved performance includes significantly reduced steam requirements (>30% reduction), elimination of two of the three steam supply lines, simplifi...
