Abstract

A numerical study is carried out to determine how thickness influences the downward spreading flame over the solid fuel in a gravitational field under natural convection. The computations are performed from thin to thick fuels, with an assumed constant flame spread rate. The numerical solutions enabled to identify the controlling mechanism and critical features.
