AbstractQuantitative results of mass of soot emitted per mass of fuel burned are presented for a range of flow conditions and fuels. Using digital imaging, flame lengths have also been measured and used to estimate flame residence times. Comparisons are made between the current measurements and results of earlier researchers for soot in the overfire region. Validity and applicability of buoyancy based models for predicting and scaling soot emissions will also be considered. The end goal of this research is to develop an experimentally based model to predict PM emissions from flares used in industry using soot emissions data from lab-scale flares. Such a model will allow industry to meet its federally mandated reporting requirements while providing industry a framework for emissions reduction.
