  • Convective heat transfer around vertical jet fires: an experimental study 

    Kozanoglu, Bulent Kozanoglu; Zárate López, Luis; Gómez-Mares, Mercedes; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (Elsevier, 2011-12)
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The convection heat transfer phenomenon in vertical jet fires was experimentally analyzed. In these experiments, turbulent propane flames were generated in subsonic as well as sonic regimes. The experimental data demonstrated ...
  • Jet fires: a "minor" major accident? 

    Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim; Gómez-Mares, Mercedes; Muñoz, Miguel Angel; Palacios, Adriana (2012)
    Open Access
    Jet fires have received only a rather reduced attention as compared to other types of fires; this is probably due to the fact that they are usually much smaller that fireballs, pool fires or tank fires. However, jet fires ...
  • Thermal and geometrical features of jet fires 

    Palacios, Adriana; Gómez-Mares, Mercedes; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (Philippe Tanguy/Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering, 2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Abstract: In many severe accidents involving explosions or large fires, jet fires have been the first step of a domino effect sequence: a recent historical analysis has shown that among the accidents registered in the data ...
