Abstract : The objective of this research was to develop a fundamental understanding of the behavior of buoyancy controlled axisymmetric diffusion gas flames and liquid pool fires. Specifically, we attempted to simulate two-dimensional axisymmetric profiles of the velocity, temperature, and species and soot concentrations. Knowledge of these profiles allowed us to determine the main characteristics of the flame; i.e., the heat feed back, which in turn determines the mass burning rate of a liquid pool, the height of the flame and the power output of a fire source to the surrounding environment.
